Diagnosed with stage 3 triple negative breast cancer
Good morning. My name is Alana. I’m 40. Single mom. I was diagnosed October 25. Stage 3, triple negative. Although that may have changed… yesterday my doctor called and said things like “more invasive than we thought” and “numerous tumors” e ended with “I really hope this works”. So, clearly not news I was excited to hear. I got my port last Thursday. I begin chemo this Thursday (the 15th). And honestly, I’m already sick to death of the cancer talk. I feel healthy. I went to the gym twice a day every day for a year. I don’t drink or smoke or do drugs. I’m not overweight… so I think this is all bullshit. I know I’m not special. It’s not about who deserves this. It’s not my punishment… but I’m still mad. I have kids still at home and a brand new grand baby. I don’t FEEL like I have cancer. I can’t imagine battling this for years…
