Breast Cancer at age 41

I have  invasive ductal carcinoma in my breast.  I never expected to receive a cancer diagnosis at age 41.  It is so scary - I am fit, healthy and happy but I have cancer.  My surgery is scheduled for Halloween - my FAVORITE holiday.  The doctor\'s are not sure whether I need chemo, but I will need radiation.  I plan to work as much as possible during my recovery, but it probably will be difficult since I am a self employed yoga instructor, fitness trainer and group exercise instructor.  It is challenging for me to ask for help - since my nature is to give, not receive.  The medical bills are as scary as the cancer.  I have a high insurance deductible with no prescription drug coverage.  Any money collected will go directly to my medical bills. 

Supporters can also help by sending positive energy and healing thoughts my way.  Your kind gestures, smiles and hugs are such good medicine.  It is your support that keeps me going - knowing that it is not time for our energies / souls to part ways yet.
