Your Story

I went in for my yearly mammogram in October (29th) to be precise. Nothing showed up, got the report back everything was good and see you next year. I guess you know it didn't end there. In my I noticed a lump in my left breast, thinking it my be some dense calcifications. The lump was getting bigger, so in a weeks time. I called my primary doctor to electronically send a order for a mammogram. He said Lisa you just had one in October. I told him that I didn't care about that. He sent it and the next day May 16th, I went in for another mammogram with my husband. I hadn't told him what was going on yet. I knew it was cancer from the way my body was changing nevertheless he waited out in the waiting room for a hour and a half. They were during test after test, the doctor finally came in and he said that I have cancer. I laughed he said why did you laugh, I told him from the commercials they show on TV. That the doctor's show no feeling when they tell you that you have cancer. That is the beginning of my journey.
