Counting My Blessings

I never imagined that December 15,2015 would be the beginning of My Pink Warrior Breast Cancer Journey . I had been my Mother's Care Giver for the last 7 years until She lost her battle with Ovarian Cancer on May 7 ,2012. I neglected my health until recently . I had a routine screening Mammogram on November 7 and it was abnormal . So next on December 3 had Diagnostic Mammogram then followed the ultrasound and then on December 10 had a biopsy of my right breast, the findings were cluster microcalcifications . On December 30th I had a Lumpectomy Surgery findings were that I have DCIS Stage 0 with clear margins and non invasive Cancer . I'm currently having Radiation treatments for 6 weeks then doing Hormonal Blockade Therapy . I will never regret caring for My Mother . But I'm Counting My Blessings that My Diagnosis is an Early Detection after waiting 7 years before having My Yearly Mammogram . I am 52 years old. I have an Amazing Strong Supportive Husband of 33 years to come along and walk this Journey with me. My Faith is very strong ! My verse is I can do All things through Christ who strengthens me . Philippians 4:13
