Shannon Schroeder:
At the age of 40, hearing you have breast cancer is not something you could ever prepare yourself for.  I have lived and  worked my entire life in the Beaumont Area.  I have 3 beautiful children, Cole who is 14, Cassidy 11, and Caylee 9, and I will fight for my life in order to see them grow up.  They are by far the best thing I have accomplished and enjoy in my life.  

Diagnosis
June 11, 2018, was the day I was told I had infiltrating mammary carcinoma,  along with regional lymph node metastasis.  Which is cancer cells that spread to new parts of the body.

Treatment Plan
• Being treated at the University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center for breast cancer. Received chemotherapy every three weeks for 6 months.
On completion of chemotherapy, I will proceed with a mastectomy surgery January 2019, followed by 6-8 weeks of radiation therapy, and  also require and additional 8 treatments of immunotherapy after surgery/radiation and 5-10 years of oral endocrine therapy.

Shocking News 
• I can honestly say I will never forget December 5, 2018.  Not only is it the day we said our goodbyes to my grandmother, I received a phone call from my job of 14 years that I was being laid off and it was my last day of work, and my health insurance would be ending 2 days later with no option of Cobra.  If you could only imagine what was going through my mind at the time.  

How you can help
Donations will be used for:  Covering medical bills, and day to day living for my family.

New insurance requires displacement from my home and family
• I will have to stay in Houston for 6-8 weeks for daily radiation treatments Monday-Friday

Thank you for helping me in this fight with cancer!

Today I was at MD Anderson and complete my simulation for radiation treatment. It is official I start my treatment on Friday February 22, 2019. I am still waiting to see about my living situation for the next 6 weeks I Houston by the Medical Center. I will also begin my new Chemotherapy treatment while I am undergoing Radiation. I am truly blessed for everything and everybody who has supported me throughout my journey. It is not quite over but closer today then I was yesterday. Thank you again for everything and if any new information arrives I will keep everyone informed. Have a wonderful day and we will talk again soon. HAPPY FRIDAY

Update
Had an emergency surgery yesterday to remove some infection, and all of it got removed. They did have to remove the tissue expander but it's a good thing because he also was able to remove the dead tissue from first surgery. Please keep praying , because I know I am.

I had a follow up appointment with all of my doctors at MD Anderson this week, and the outcome is good but could have always been better. When I meet with my surgeon she was super excited that during surgery she was able to remove 90% of the cancer from my breast and all the lymph node on the left side of my body. This is really good news but of course I wish is would have been 100% but I will take it. My oncologist was even more excited to present a new drug to me called T-DM1 (Katherine HER2 Drug) for Advanced Metastatic Breast Cancer. Genentech is the company who also makes Herceptin and Perjeta which I have already taken. I am excited and praying the insurance company approves it, but if not I have a plan and have already filled out application for free drugs from the company patient foundation. I also meet with the Oncology Radiation doctor about treatment and she also is super excited about a new study that is proving 4 weeks of Radiation instead of 6-8 improve the chances of not getting Lymphoma this would be awesome. So at this point it is kinda a waiting game for the next couple weeks to determine my new treatment plan, but as soon as I know you will too so until then keep your fingers crossed and I appreciate you all.

So, Shannon’s surgery went well and she is in great spirits! They have removed the cancer in her chest cavity and also had to remove all the lymph nodes on the one side! She’s a rockstar! Here she is right out of surgery! Kicking cancer in the rear! She will go home tomorrow morning and then back to MD Anderson for radiation for 6-8 weeks! Shannon thanks you all for your continuous prayers, thoughts, and support! She will keep you all updated!
