THE STORY:

The company I work for, Lovingly, LLC, is a sponsor of this year's Miles of Hope Hudson Valley Community Walk for Breast Cancer on Oct 1st.  We will also be walking as a team to raise funds for Miles of Hope. Most of you who are here already know what this past year entailed. Just as Joe was finally getting up and around, I was diagnosed with invasive ductal breast cancer. 


I was very lucky. It was caught very early.


At my last annual gyn visit, my doctor left it up to me as to whether or not I wanted to get a mammogram. She still recommended every year, but there are guidelines out there that suggest every two. Since it was just over a year since my baseline, I figured why not? Can't hurt, right? The radiologist spotted something irregular on the mammogram and sent me for a sonogram. She didn't like what she saw there either so suggested I come back for a biopsy. The radiologist that performed the biopsy was fairly certain it was nothing - just a blood vessel. I left certain everything was ok. No worries.


It came back cancer.


But I was lucky. It was so tiny. I couldn't feel it.  The surgeon couldn't feel it. I would have never noticed it during a self-examination. 


I was so incredibly lucky. I didn't require chemo. But due to the type of the cancer itself, 6.5 weeks of radiation therapy was still necessary.


This could have been so much worse. If I had waited another year, who knows what stage I would have developed instead of "just" Stage 1.


Early detection is everything.
