I was diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma of the right breast on July 20, 2011. Since then I have had 4 rounds of chemotherapy and had a right lateral mastecomy and lymph node dissection on November 7th. My treatment plan includes 4 more rounds of chemotherapy and 5 weeks of radiation. I am 41 years old, a wife and mother of 3 children. There was no history of breast cancer in my family.
