"Knowledge is power. I hope and pray that I watch my grandkids grow up.”
I was a 54-year-old lady when I went for my first mammogram, and it came back positive for estrogen-fed breast cancer. Scans showed it had already gone to my spine, my chest cavity, then it started a mass in my arm.
Now, I’ll be doing my 15th chemo treatment tomorrow. I have to have it the rest of my life. Every little ache makes one wonder if it spread more, or if anything changes in scans every three months.
Knowledge is power. I hope and pray that I watch my grandkids grow up. The oldest one is ten and the youngest is three. I try to stay positive for them.
