Hi! I’m Patti. Welcome to My Cancer Life.
I was diagnosed at age 40 in September 2014 with Stage 2 Invasive Ductal Carcinoma. It was later re-staged to 3 when it was discovered the cancer spread to my lymph nodes. The amount of cancer is so small in my lymph nodes, it is undetectable by scans. I have been through chemotherapy, radiation and surgeries (several surgeries). I don’t know if I’m cancer free. I know there is always a chance for re-occurrence. But I refuse to let cancer live my life. I have cancer, but cancer doesn’t have me.
