About Me

Hi! Thank you so much for visiting my blog! We all know why you are here….to read about my journey with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer. I do not hold anything back when sharing my journey, so from time to time, there will be graphic photos with a clear warning in the title of the blog post.

Now on to a little bit about me….I am 54 years old, I have been married to my best friend for 18 years this coming May, I have one older brother who lives overseas {no, he is not in the military}, my Dad turned 91 years old in January, and I have lived in 5 states and in Australia at one time or another in my life.

My Cancer Story Basics: After 2 years and 4 months, my cancer has returned. On February 16, 2022, I was diagnosed with the same stage 3c type of cancer I had before, but this time it is located in my neck. After many scans and a second biopsy on a rib in my back, my diagnosis was updated to Stage 4 Metastatic Breast Cancer on March 22, 2022. I started my treatment on March 28, 2022, consisting of iBrance with 21 days on, 7 days off rotation, and Faslodex injections once a month.

My Previous Cancer: I was Dx at age 51 w/ ER/PR+, HER2-, IDC. I have had ACT, Rads, and I am on a 10 yr plan w/ HT, Anastrozole. My cancerversary is the date of Dx on February 25th, 2019. I have had a partial mastectomy, port-a-cath insertion, reconstruction w/reduction mammoplasty, and insertion of breast prosthesis following reconstruction.
