Oh gosh, I am sorry you are going through this.  I am sure glad you listened to your gut and got this checked out.  Congratualations on your marriage.  I wish you a lifetime of health and happiness once you are through this ordeal.

I’ve known a couple girls from my HS that had it in their early 20s (20-23) so I always knew it was possible and not really that uncommon, but it’s always terrible to hear of it happening. Good luck with your treatments and congrats on the wedding!

I’m sorry you are going through this, and wishing you a speedy recovery! My Mom just finished her chemo after being diagnosed with stage II breast cancer in October; it’s deinitely made me more aware of monitoring my own breasts.

worldtraveler:  I am so sorry you are going through all this and thank you for sharing your story <3  

I’ve never discounted it in my life (31 now) because I have family history of it.  Also, I have a close male friend who had prostate cancer in college.  Anything can happen and early detection is key.  *prayers* 🙂

worldtraveler:  you are so very strong and I wish you a speedy and full recovery. Thank you for sharing your story with us – I have seen cancer take several young people with no bad habits in the past few years and it is devastating. You are so right, people shouldn’t wait to see their doctors until they have symptoms – starting treatment even months sooner could make a difference!
