No chemotherapy necessary
Michal’s breast cancer turned out to be 100% hormone positive with low risk of recurrence, so she decided to undergo radiation and hormone therapy to help destroy the cancer. “Life is about making decisions but when you have cancer, decisions are about life or death. At forty-four, I was making decisions that would impact the rest of my life. I was lucky because my surgery and radiation went well, but every morning my first thought is still knowing I had cancer. I still question my body for failing me this way. When people ask when I’ll be in remission, I give a short answer of ‘Never.’ Any survivor knows breast cancer is a lifelong disease; notorious for hiding in other areas. You live day-to-day knowing it can come back at any time” Michal said.
