“Fight” – To struggle, war, dispute, brawl, wrestle, scrap or battle I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, and I have kept the faith. II Timothy 4:7 KJV Just when I thought that I had recovered from the most traumatic occurrence in my life, a ton of bricks came tumbling down on top of me. I was diagnosed with stage three Breast Cancer. Prior to my diagnosis, I had a left axilla biopsy performed where a swollen lymph node was removed. The pathology report revealed the node tested positive for metastatic aden carcinoma - ER, PR and HER-2. A later MRI revealed that the involvement of the breast was by ductal carcinoma in situ and possible infiltrating carcinoma. There was a dominant 7.3 aggressive invasive tumor in my left breast extending into my nipple. Basically, I was in trouble and I needed medical attention as soon as humanly possible. At the rate the Cancer was growing, I did not have time to think about what I was going to do. I needed to begin a plan of action right away. The Cancer was in a lymph node under my arm and practically consumed my left breast. A few months prior I had received my results back from an annual mammogram. My results were super fantastic and the doctors nor I saw this coming at all. It was almost unbearable digesting all of what the doctor explained to my parents, my eldest sister and me in the early fall of 2007. I could not make sense out of what I was hearing. It was difficult to believe what was happening to me, to my children and my family. Yes, I had heard about others having it and it always saddened me, but me? I would have never imagined that something this terrible would happen to me? To me, it felt like it was the end of the world.
