On May 16, 2014 I went to my Doctor for a rountine checkup that included a mammogram which turned into a moment that has changed my life. At the check-up, it was discovered that I had a "spiculated mass highly suspicious of malignancy." I returned on May 20th for another mammogram and ultrasound. The ultrasound clearly showed the mass and of course, a biopsy was necessary. The biopsy confirmed malignancy. On June 4th a lumpectomy and a senninal lymph node biopsy were performed, and the pathology report showed that there was cancer in one of my lymph nodes also. On June 25th, I had second surgery, a partial mastectomy and lymph node dissection which we are currently awaiting the pathology results. My Doctors informed me that I will require radiation treatment and possibly chemotherepy as well as hormone therapy (my cancer is estrogen receptive).
Unfortunately, the surgeries, pending medical treatment and current medical bills have caused a great financial burden for me, my husband, and children.
With one child preparing for college and the suddenness of short-term disablity, my ability to financially support my son in his preparations for college have been hampered to say the least. As well, generally speaking, daily living hasn't been easy.
Anything you can contribute will be received with great apprectiation. And please know that all your prayers and well wishes are and will be greatly appreciated.
