My beautiful 43 year old wife of 4 years was recently diagnosed with Stage 2A breast cancer in her right breast. She has two lumps (1cm&1.5 cm) and one lymph node under the arm came back positive for non Her2 50% estrogen receptive very agressive BC. All MRIs and bone scans came back negative for cancer any where other than in the right breast (great news). She was started on 4 treatment of AC bi-weekly then will get 4 of taxol bi-weekly, then surgery. Surgeon hopes the chemo will shrink the tumors enough to only do a lumpectomy. She got her 2nd AC treatment last friday and has been doing great, just a little tired the day after and sore bones due to the neulasta injection. She is handling it much better than me. I try to stay strong and positive for her but sometimes I just break down and feel there is no hope. She has started loosing her hair and asked me to shave it off for her tonight. It breaks my heart and don't think that I can do it. I went to buy her some warm hats today at Wal-Mart and just broke down and had to leave the store. I am so scared of losing her and I don't know how to stop the "worst case scenario" thinking.
