I was diagnosed with breast cancer on Sept.11th 2006. I had a total masectomy with an immediate reconstruction. Was put on chemo treatments for 8 weeks every 2 weeks. I was also put on early menopause.  I still have a PICC line because I stillget Herceptin every 3 weeks. I have not been able to go to work yet. My hair is just starting to grow.  It has been horrible, but at least I survived. My Mom had breast cancer at age 59 and I'm 44 yrs old. My youngest son had a brain tumor at age 6 and he is now 19 yrs old.

Thank God for my husband who is a nurse and I had him for 24/7 taking care of me. Also my daughter who moved back home while she was pregnant and the baby was born in our house and was also great help.
