My story begins in June of 2008 when I was diagnosed with Stage 1 Breast Cancer of the right breast. I discovered my breast cancer while showering and performing a breast self-exam. My doctor recommended a breast ultrasound followed by a biopsy. Based on the results of the tests, my doctor performed a lumpectomy to remove the tumor. This was followed by a series of direct radiation treatments. I received treatments every week day for eight weeks, and I was in and out of the doctor’s office each day in less than fifteen minutes. It took longer to drive to the office than it did to be treated.
