Treatment location? Virginia Breast Center – Dr. Pellicane (Surgery) at St. Francis, plastic surgery – Dr. Gregory Lynam, Oncology – Dr. Susan Schaff @ St. Mary’s.
How was it found (self-examination, mammogram, annual checkup etc)? The knot was found during a self-examination; confirmed by ultrasound and biopsy.
Do you have a family history of breast cancer? No.
As a woman what gives you your strength (not necessarily a woman with breast cancer but just an average woman)? My family; my husband of 27 years and my children. My dad and 5 sisters and 1 brother.
Briefly state in your own words something about yourself that you want people to know. I found strength in myself, I didn’t know I had.
You can change anything with a little determination and faith in yourself. Cancer has definitely changed my life, but for the better. I’m stronger and more determined to learn and live life to the fullest with no regrets.
One person CAN make a difference......be that person
