Patty has Stage 3A Breast Cancer!!

In October of 2011 Patty discovered a lump in her right breast, she did what any other woman would do and went to her Dr. to get checked. After having a mammogram the Dr. advised her that she would have to get checked every 6 months. She went back in after 6 months to get another routine mammogram only to discover that the lump had turned into a tumor and she would need a biopsy. The biopsy came b
ack negative for cancer.

In July of 2012 she had a Lumpectomy because the tumor had ruptured and she was in extreme pain. On August 3,2012 she received the results from the Lumpectomy only to hear something that she was not expecting nor was her family. Patty had Stage 2 Breast Cancer on her right breast. After talking to her Dr. about her options, Patty, decided to undergo a Double Mastectomy on August 23,2012. On September 6,2012, Patty went to her first Oncologist appointment to meet her Dr. and find out what kind of Chemotherapy and Radiation she was going to need to help her battle this cancer. This is the day she and her family found out some more news they were not expecting. She was then diagnosed with Stage 3 Terminal Breast Cancer with only a 30-40% chance of recovery and an 80% chance that the tumor would return.
