    Hi All, 
    I was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer in December 2023. I underwent a double mastectomy in early January and I am currently doing chemotherapy. Just completed my 2nd A/C.. 2 more to go then 12 Paclitaxel. Radiation & hormone therapy to follow. Breaking it down into each step seems to make it manageable. 
    I have 2 daughters aged 15 & 17 and a supportive husband. 
    It’s definitely a journey but so far I have been lucky with a great medical team and support around. Happy to reach out and chat or support where I can for others along the way.
