Annette - born in NE Ohio, now living in SW Ohio but my heart and soul is still out west. Have lived in Burbank, Hollywood Hills, Savannah, Cordova (Memphis), Scottsdale and now in Morrow (north of Cincinnati, south of Columbus - don't blink you will miss it)
Diagnosed on 12/15/1999 at age 36 while first and only child was four months old. Apparently the cancer grew as my belly was growing. Double mastectomy done on 12/30/1999. Not the best way to welcome in the new year but thanks to the morphine drip I welcomed in the New year starting in New Zealand and ending with the US. No positive nodes but was stage IIB. Did 6 months of CMF. Did tamoxifin for 6 months and was put on arimidex for sanity's sake. Had ovaries removed in October of 2001 and reconstruction in October of 2000.
