“I was diagnosed with HER2 Positive Stage I ductal breast cancer following a mammogram that was scheduled at Ladies’ Night Out 2021.
My biopsy and lumpectomy were done by Dr. Ghazali at WMMC. I had the choice of staying in Warrensburg or going to other area hospitals for treatment, and I chose to stay ‘home.’ I wanted to do everything that I could to stay in Warrensburg because I did not want to drive or find drivers all the time for tests or treatments. I have also lived in this town for almost 40 years and I feel very comfortable with our hospital.
As I was going along the journey of treatments and tests, I continually ran into people I already knew that become part of my recovery team and I LOVED that. I also really enjoyed my oncologist, Dr. Singh, and his nurse practitioner, Shea Fijal.
As far as recovery, I had six rounds of chemo last spring, twenty rounds of radiation this summer and I have started targeted therapy until February and then immunotherapy for the next 5 years.
When I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I had just found that I was going to be a Grandma, so I had more reason to fight this! I am so thankful for all the prayers and to my Heavenly Father for giving me the strength and comfort I needed to fight this fight. My family, my work family at Warrensburg Christian School, and Bethlehem Lutheran Church family have been so supportive with helping driving, food, monetary gifts, understanding with time off and concern and prayers.”
