I welcome you to my page and remind you of the importance of doing monthly self breast exams and having a mammogram as your Dr. reccomends.
I care beacause I am a Breast Cancer Survivor, and these things saved my life!

Here's my recipe for a New Life:

To make each day better than the day before!
T remember what's important to me and that each new day is a gift from God.
To organize my time and make the most of everyday.
To keep my home orderly, organized and clean.
To take better care of my health by eating the most nutritious diet possible.
To take part in a regular physical fitness program with a daily exercise routine, supplemented by other activities I enjoy depending on the season.
To live my life with respect to all of God's creatures.
To improve my mind, body and spirit on a daily basis.
To support and give care to those who need it.
To ask for support when I need it.

    2 years since my mastectomy. Research saved me from having chemo or radiation that would not have eliminated my type of cancer. I take a pill every day to stay cancer-free.

    Mucinous (colloid) carcinoma is a rare type of invasive breast cancer that is formed when cancer cells within your breast produce mucous. This mucous contains breast cancer cells that are easily distinguished from normal cells under a microscope. Together, the mucous and cancer cells form a jelly-like tumor. Most mucinous carcinomas of the breast are estrogen-receptor positive and HER2/neu negative.

    This type of breast cancer rarely spreads to your lymph nodes.

    Mucinous carcinoma of the breast is a rare type of invasive breast cancer, diagnosed in less than 3% of all women diagnosed with breast cancer.
