Sadly, I have surgery on Thursday to check one of my lymph nodes for cancer. I was laying in bed doing my self exam, and all the sudden I felt something hard under my skin.

Now, remember I no longer have breasts so it’s a little easier to feel something…. and a little tougher because all of my chest area, and most of my upper arms are totally numb from the double mastectomy.


So….. I am scared. I am worried. I want this to come back negative so I can keep trying to move my life in a positive direction. If, by chance it is positive… I will need chemo again and also radiation. I’m really only 6-7 months out from finishing the last cancer treatment.


I am terrified, but want to end this on a more positive note. This is the 3rd lump in my breasts I have found on my own. What this means is…. DO YOUR SELF EXAMS EVERY SINGLE MONTH. If anything at all changes, go to the doctor and get it looked at. Thank you

for the constant love and prayers. Thank you from the bottom of my heart💜
