I am 35 yrs and I never thought I would be saying I have cancer. On June 5th, I found a lump. I freaked, immediately wanting to get in to a doctor. I have a wellness exam June 9th, from there they order a mammogram and an ultrasound. I got had these done on June 12th. On June 14th I received my results. I have never been so hysterical in my life, I had read up on the scoring. Bi-Rad 5 o.O I lost it. Highly suggestive of malignancy. So from there I had to go thru heck trying to find funding to have a core biopsy done. The UTMB in Beaumont messed up and never checked with my insurance to see if I could have one done. So we finally get to the point where we were gonna pay it out of pocket. I get the great news “ITS COVERED”. So my mom takes me to have the biopsy on June 23rd. My mom has been great through this whole process. On June 27th we receive the news. Its as we feared. Its Cancer. So from there they schedule me to see Dr Helen Silva, she is a surgeon. So we see her on June 30th, she goes over my pathology. I have Triple Negative Invasive Ductal Carcinoma. This is the start of my journey.
