I think i am still in shock as this always happens to everyone else not me. I was getting short of breath from easy activities. Went to hospital and was told my blood counts were very low. Had 3 units of blood and after seeing the doctor I was told I have Breast cancer that has spread to my bone marrow. I am not making healthy blood and that is why my blood counts are low. It is estrogen positive receptor cells in my bone marrow. I have been on a hormone therapy for three weeks. I am waiting to see the doctor next week. Hopefully I will get a timeline for when I will have the masectomy and chemo. Reading things on the internet can scare you. Most sites say I have a 20% chance of surviving for 5 years. Does anyone there have a similar case? I am so scared. However I need to put my faith in God.
