My 65th Birthday

On May 10th, 2005 I was doing my regular breast check self exam and I found a lump. I had no insurance yet because my birthday wasn't until the 24th of May. I called my new doctor and explained what I found and she went right to work to get the insurance to start sooner. When I had my biopsy they found 2 more tumers. I elected to have my breast removed, they took lymph nodes to check them also. When I went to the surgeon to have the stitches removed he informed me the nodes came back with more cancer. I had to undergo more surgery to remove 10 nodes. I went through chemo for 8 months and I am clean today. Thanks to my new doctor and her attention to me I am cancer free for almost 4 years.
