I am  Rebeca Herrera-Arguera, 39 years old. I been  recently diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer on August 16, 2016 a day after my birthday. I have stage 3 Invasive Ductal Carcinoma that has spread to my lymph nodes as well, HER2+positive.
I couldn't believe or understand what the doctor's were telling me that day, I remember as they were giving me my diagnosis being completely paralyzed, confused, my brain didn't process the information, I was in shock. It took me days to accept the fact that I had breast cancer, that I was sick and I needed treatment as soon as possible to avoid it to spread to my lungs. I am the first of my family to be diagnosed with breast cancer no one has had it before me.
My 13 year old daughter, and a caring husband that is all I have,  we are a small family and my husband is doing everything possible to keep providing for us. But the treatment is very expensive and i will be receiving chemotherapy for a year,  and a double mastectomy next year if I defeat Cancer. I need all the help I can get to survive for my family, I owe them that. Please help me so that I can live for my family. Help us to succeed in my battle against breast cancer, please help me survive.

Finally the day arrived, today Is surgery day!
I'm scared, I'm terrified but I am determined to stay alive and not to dwell on my illness. I can't change what has happened, and wallowing in self-pity does no good to anyone.
Through my own experience I have learned that breast cancer need not be as devastating as it seem. Instead of a death sentence, it can be a gift that helps a woman to appreciate what she has and make the very most of her life.

Chemo #6 it's finally here, I have already been scheduled for surgery on January 31.
Praying and hoping to continue with the treatment without any more health complications.
Praying to my Lord to keep his healing hand in my body, and to continue giving me strength to keep going.
I'm really looking forward for the surgery,
My body it's in God's hands, he will decide what happens on that day, and whatever it is in can only accept.
My dear friends thank you for all the support, I truly can say I felt God's love thru you, many blessings to all of you.
Happy holidays for you and families.
Feeling positive, happy thoughts.

My 5th chemo, one more to go and then just a matter of time for surgery, then Herceptin for a year.
Thank you my Lord for all your love and all the angels you put in our way, thank you for your patience and not letting me give up. It's hard to understand your ways but I know you must have a purpose to make me go thru this, I know it's not over yet so please stay with me till the end of the way it is my prayer, hold my hand and don't let go.
Amen.

Hey Girl! So sorry to hear this! But like me, you WILL come through this! God will definitely provide for you and your family if you rest on Him! Are you still working at Giant in Centreville? Why is the mastectomy scheduled so far away? Are you going to receive chemo at the Loudoun Hematology attached to the hospital? Look forward to hearing from you!
