A Survivor's Story

Stage 3 breast cancer survivor praises her clinical care team.


 

I am a survivor of four years and I feel truly blessed. Eventhough, my cancer was Ductile Carcinoma In Situ, High Grade with Comedo Foci and Cancerization of Lobules it was caught early and before it had the chance to spread. Being in tuned with my body allowed me to know that something was not right therefore I pursued going to a doctor to see what was going on. Only to find out that I did have a lump in my R breast that needed to be looked at. After finding out that it was cancer I took all the appropriate measures to get it taken care of immediately which I did. I needed a lumpectomy and radiation as well as Temoxiphen for 5 years. My advice to everyone who may or may not suffer from cancer is to know your body so that you can act accordingly should you think something is wrong.
