“Her name is Penny and she was diagnosed with breast cancer in November 2015. It came as quite the shock to her and her family. Things progressed quickly to discover she had stage 2, Nottingham grade 3 invasive ductal carcinoma that is poorly differentiated. They began chemo soon after and she is currently receiving 6, she has been going approximately every 3 weeks for chemo. However, after her first round she became extremely ill and was in and out of the hospital numerous times. Come to find out her gallbladder was failing and she ended up going in for surgery. Round 2 and 3 had slight improvements but she was still in and out of the hospital repeatedly to help with the aftermath of the chemo; basically she would feel terrible for 2 weeks then have a week of feeling better to turn around and start all over again.”
