My story begins on St. Patrickís Day 2005 when I received the news
that I had lobular breast cancer. No symptoms, no family history,
no lumpsÖno nothing. The cancer was diagnosed after a baseline
screening mammogram. My gynecologist recommended that I get a
picture of my breasts at 35 so when I turned 40 I would have those
pictures to compare for any differences in my breasts. I thought
that made sense. Neither one of us thought for a minute that the
mammogram would show any cancerous cells!
We were moving back to the Midwest at the time of the diagnosis. We
started treatment shortly afterwards. It turned out all the
treatments didnít work and I was diagnosed again a few years later.
I created this website because I found from my own experience that
people donít always know what to do or say when someone they know is
diagnosed with cancer. I found that a lot of other cancer survivors
experienced some of the same situations so I thought this site would
be helpful to those recently diagnosed or for those who know someone
with a cancer diagnosis but donít know what to do or say.
Wishing you health and happiness!
