I was diagnosed in July of 2005 less than 90 days after a clean mammogram. I found my lump on the eve of the 4th of July. After 2 lumpectomy surgeries, 8 chemo treatments and 7 weeks of radiation I am closing in on being a 4 year survivor. It was one of the most trying times of my life but it really showed me that I am much tougher than I thought. I could not have done any of it however, without the love and support of my husband, children, parents, extended family and oodles and oodles of dear friends and neighbors. It took a village and I still feel so blessed.
