After a very long month of waiting…..I got the call today…I am BRCA Negative!! I do NOT have the breast cancer gene!
That is the single best piece of news I’ve heard since this journey began in February. It’s not only good for me, but great news for my girls Carly & Hailey. It’s great news for my brothers, and my nieces and nephews.
As a very positive person, I’m so happy to be negative 🙂
I found out after I had met with my Oncologist today. I was actually having my Herceptin treatment when the phone rang!
It’s is such a relief, a big relief…now at least I know what my next steps are. I am meeting with the Genetic Councillor on Monday to go through all the paperwork, and then I have my first of 25 radiation sessions right after. I’m so happy that I will be having radiation, as I must admit, the alternative was not so appealing. I was keeping a brave face, but, I’m radiation was my preferred route.
Thank you everyone for all your prayers….they worked!!
