2. Just two years ago I had my lumpectomy. So many of our lives have been saved by early detection

6. So did my wife.

It will be two years since the surgery at the end of this month. We walked into the hospital at noon, and out at 5:30.

3. She's lucky it was caught so early.

I always had regular mammograms but when my cancer was discovered (I felt it on self-exam when it was about 1/2 inch in size) it had already migrated to numerous lymph nodes and was stage 3C. It's now been four years since I finished treatment, so I am optimistic.

I wish her the best!

5. That reminds me

I should ask my PCP to order another breast scan at the radiology clinic the next time I see her, as it's been over a year since my last scan, and I've been noticing some worrying signs in recent weeks.

8. I had the same kind

Stage 1. Never felt a thing. It was discovered on a routine mammogram. It hadn’t spread, so no chemo.
Get your mammograms! Early detection is key!

10. I have a needle biopsy this week.

It could be nothing. Or something.
I’m kinda terrified, but whatever it is, it’s very early on.
I’m glad to hear the Senator has recovered.
