Hello I would like to share my story with the world, In May 2011 I was taking a shower and I noticed a "bump" under my right armpit, I went to the doctor, she examined me, told me it "probably" is a cyst or boil, she gave me a script for antibotics and I left, took the pills for a week "BUMP STILL THERE" went back again and demanded to see another doctor, THANK GOD I DID! As it turned out I had stage 3 breast cancer! The lump in my breast was so tiny that the mammogram either missed or it showed up after I had it! They kept digging and found it with a handheld ultrasound! It spread to 29 of my lymphnodes!! So we have to be VERY aware of our bodies!!! Thank God for great doctors at Henry Ford Westbloomfield!! I am still here and alive after going through a lumpectomy, 8 rounds of chemotherapy and 33 rounds of radiation!! GOD IS AWESOME I AM SO VERY THANKFUL!! AND GRATEFUL!! PLEASE DON'T BE AFRAID! MAKE THE DOCS LISTEN TO YOU!!!! ASK QUESTIONS THIS IS YOUR LIFE!!!!!! In my case they also told me that I have dense breast tissue so It Is hard to see a lump or lumps so ask for a ultrasound or even a pet scan It will pick up any abnormalities!! I was also tested for the BRCA gene, it came back 100% negative, I have changed my eating habits, switched to natural deodorant, eating more organic foods, don't smoke I have even switched to organic wine on special occasions whatever works to lower the chances of cancer for good! I am working on a exercise regimen as well Thank you for reading my story best wishes and blessings to all!
