Recounting my steps

On July 21st, I learned that I had breast cancer. I could barely stand after I heard those words...but God! Since that day, I have tried to focus on the journey ahead. I chose my hospital (Loyola - Cardinal Bernadin Cancer Center) and my lead oncologist Patricia Robinson...or so I thought. God had this all planned out so long ago. Louis went to med school with the now Vice Chair of Radiation Oncology at Loyola. Patricia is not only a dear friend of one of my big sisters, she is at the top of her game and widely published on the study of breast cancer, especially in black women. God stacked the deck and prepared all of us for this fight - before there was even a fight.

I have now had a myriad of tests that have confirmed where the cancer is and where it isn’t! No cancer in the lymph nodes!
