Love for Lauren

Lauren is a 28 year old wife and mother to three young children. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in May 2017.
Here's her story, "I found 2 masses while I was in the shower a few months ago. One in my left breast and the other in my left armpit. I thought nothing of it because I had a benign cyst in high school, but my mother-in-law convinced me to go in and get it checked out. After an ultrasound, mammogram and biopsy it turned out to be cancer. That was the scariest part thinking I was going to die with a family of 3 young kids. 15 years ago it may have been a death sentence, but luckily it is so treatable now. The month after the diagnosis was chaotic trying to pick the right doctors and running many tests to determine if the cancer had spread to other parts of the body. I had an MRI, bone scan, CT scan, surgery to get a chemo port in, and a MRI led biopsy because they found yet another small mass in the same breast. After tests it was determined that I have stage 3, grade 3 Invasive ductal carcinoma. Estrogen and progesterone positive. We quickly started chemotherapy June 19th. I'll be
having 8 rounds of chemo every other week, surgery, then radiation. It's going to be a long year, but it won't last forever. I'm just happy to catch it when I did and to be ALIVE!"This page was created to help with treatments and any other related expenses. All donations are greatly appreciated.
