In the Beginning

Could have breast cancer
No one would tell me anything
'til I demanded them!

Don't always assume
everyone is afraid of
their diagnosis

The tumor is removed
via sentinel lymph node
biopsy method

Stage 1 bc
statistics not accurate
not a death sentence

Now the Chemo

Not one size fit all, not all
get all side effects

With chemo mornings
no longer my friend takes
longer to get going

Rebound chemo terms
is when you start building up
your blood count levels

Chemo sucks it requires
being proactive
managing side effects

Some alternatives
aromatherapy and
acupuncture too

The information that I posted may have saved my life. Find more about breast cancer and my breast cancer journey by visiting: and
