Trying to stay strong

Newly diagnosed on July 1, 2021. My first husband of 28 years passed of liver cancer while my current husband lost his first wife of 42 years to lung cancer. Now here we are together married and very much in love going through this with me with IDC breast cancer stage 3. We are both hit hard by this, but standing strong together. I have had 3 Chemo sessions of at least 8 planned for me with the plan of mastectomy and reconstruction sometime in January 2022. We are blessed with wonderful family support as well as some true and amazing friends.
