Not everything you preceive is bad turns out that way. I found my lump on October 1, 2007. It was the size of a pea. There is no breast cancer in my family, but I had it checked. I had a biopsy (which was awful). It was cancer. I had a mastectomy a week later and the tumor had gone from a size 3 to a 9 and all but 2 nodes. It was a fraction of an inch from my chest wall. So I did 8 rounds of chemo and 33 radiations. I only missed 3 days of work. The day of my mastectomy, 1/2 day the day after my surgery and one Saturday that my husband insisted I stay home.
The reason I was able to go through all this was because of ALL the support from my wonerful family and loving friends. I am now cancer free! It was a year of fears, tears, and many cheers.
