My name is Danielle. I was diagnosed last week after my GP found a lump on a routine breast exam. I'm off to surgery today. I am 39 years old have 3 beautiful girls and a wonderful husband.
I am a cancer nurse and have treated many ladies ( and the odd man) with breast cancer over the years. Knowing people in the field has been a blessing as I have been able to negotiate the medical minefield fairly well. It is however very strange to walk into a clinic where you have worked and treated patients to be worked up for treatment yourself!
Thank god for lorazepam I think it's the only thing that has kept me sane this past couple of days!
