Today marks 11 years since I was diagnosed with breast cancer.
My dx at age 39:
ductal, stage IIIc, maybe IV
9 cm tumor, 28+ grape sized nodes, er+, pr+, her2-.
6 dose dense AC
12 taxol with Xeloda
Rads to: breast, supraclav, mediastinal, axilla
I still take an AI and may add a bone strengthener
My treatment was grueling, as you all know, but I am thankful that it gave me these years. I sure hope to have many more. During this time, I have learned that every day is a gift.
Hope this encourages you as you go through your treatment.
