Just diagnosed

In October 2018, I went to the doctor for headaches and dizziness. He sent me for a MRI of the brain. Luckily he did this because they went too far down on my neck. They found a lesion on my c4 vertebrate. Next step, oncologist. They suspected mbc but no one would say. I was sent to a cancer center, to a bone doctor who took more pictures. And found two more lesions in my spine. They did a bone biopsy to confirm mbc. Now I am in treatment. This was the hardest thing to wrap my mind around. By the way it has been 18 years since I had breast cancer and we did aggressive treatment. I have no symptoms in my back, no pain. Very few side effects from treatment except, I am tired all the time and cold. I have a great support system with my family and friends. I try to live each day to the fullest. Mary Grubb
