My story is I was diagnosed with breast cancer on the 29th October 2010. I had a Lumpectomy and an axillary clearance done on the 12th November. Results from that were Hormone Receptors negative and I found out last Thursday at the oncologist appointment that also HER2 status was negative. I was also told that I had a cyst on the liver. Fortunately he thinks it is benign but I have to have an ultrasound to check. Chemo starts on the 16th. Hopefully I wont loose my hair in time for christmas. Since being diagnosed with triple negative cancer I have been very emotional. I feel I was just starting to get my head around the first diagnosis, now I am back to square one. I have tried to do a bit of research but none of it sounds very positive.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
