At 32, your life is just becoming settled. You have a career, have kids, a house. You are out of the party stage and ready to settle down and enjoy life as a grown up. It's the American dream, right? The last thing on your mind is cancer. You are still too young to battle something like that. So that lump you felt in your breast when you were showering was probably nothing.... Until you find out it's something.
That's where I'm at right now. I am 32, a single mom of two young girls, just got my career going, got a house, a dog, and some chickens. That lump in my breast that I found was a tumor, stage 2 invasive ductal carcinoma in situ. I'm too young for cancer is what they tell me, but here I am, waiting to find out when my next surgery will be.
