I was 47 years old when I was diagnosed with Invasive Ductal Carcinoma. How could this be? Breast cancer did not run in my family and I nursed both of my daughters. I did not think this would ever happen to me.
In all reality, it did. By the time I was diagnosed, the cancer was Stage 3a and Grade 3, a very aggressive form of cancer. The silver lining in all of this is that it was triple positive cancer.
Even the first doctor I saw told me how LUCKY I was that it was breast cancer because I could probably survive at least five years.
Well, in those five years, I have been blessed to plan and attend the weddings of both of my daughters, attend a the graduation of my youngest daughter from The University of Florida and have been blessed with 3 grandchildren. So when I #Blessed to a post or picture it means that I am thankful for every minute.
I hope my story will be a blessing, encouragement and inspiration to others.
