It wasn’t until late in the afternoon while I was driving that I received THE phone call.
“Your pathology report shows that you have breast cancer.”
Even though I knew this news was coming it didn’t stop the black out. My ears rang with a high pitched siren and the words following “cancer” were jumbled. I wish Jen were on the phone with me to take notes.

According to my biopsy report, it is invasive ductal carcinoma which is the most common type of breast cancer (which is some good news). The radiologist advised I seek a medical team and get several opinions from different doctors due to my situation.
I meet with the breast surgeon Virginia Chiantella, MD on Monday and Jen’s oncologist, Dr. David Heyer on Tuesday. Personal research and recommendations perceive them to be phenomenal doctors.
I just want this process to start already.
