I was always diligent with my annual mammograms. I paid extra for 3D mammograms in 2015 and 2016. I noticed a slight swelling and a faint rash one day…. I called my PCP and they had an immediate cancellation… so I went right in. They suggested I go to my imaging place and get a biopsy. This was in January… in December I had gone for my annual physical and had no issues. They took 3 needle biopsies and all three came back with bad news. I started 6 rounds of chemo which ended in June 2016, mastectomy and total node dissection in July, finished my 30 radiation treatments at Halloween. I went for my last radiation with a pink mohawk.
