Two years ago today, just before Easter I was diagnosed with breast cancer.
It was a pretty hairy scary diagnosis too. My diagnosis was Grade 3, Stage 3 Her2+ breast cancer. If I got through the first two years without a reoccurence then I was beating some pretty high odds.
Well... I'm still here. 18 weeks of chemotherapy, 25 rounds radiation and 52 weeks of Herceptin and 7 months (so far) of Neratinib later I'm still here. And life is good!!
Two years!! This is massive for me. Its a real mental game sometimes. Next stop. 3 years, then 4, then 5 and the oncology people won't want to see me anymore!
Bring on the weekend. I think this time it calls for some bubbles!

And also just to say thank you to all our friend and family.
We as a family wouldn't be the same without love and support from so many people.
