When Dana went in for her routine mammogram, she didn’t think anything of it.
But the tests came back with an abnormality and they wanted to do further testing.
The call from her doctor came in November 2017. That’s when Dana heard the dreaded words. “It’s cancer.”
Dana was diagnosed with Stage 1 invasive ductal carcinoma. Her husband, Ed, was so stunned when she called to tell him, he couldn’t move. He just stared at the phone.
But things were about to get even worse. Because when she met with an oncologist, the doctor grinned joyfully at her. As if it was a happy occasion.
Even though Dana’s family members had survived cancer and lived long, happy lives, the oncologist didn’t seem to register this survival rate. Instead, she told Dana – still only having basic tests results – that she needed a double mastectomy. And seven weeks of radiation plus chemo. AND five years of Tamoxifen.
For Dana, it was worse than hearing she had cancer. Plus she felt like her doctor only saw dollar signs, not a human being. So Dana started her battle. She found a better doctor, fighting her insurance company every step of the way. A lumpectomy was scheduled instead of a double mastectomy. Then she found TTAC.
Watching A Global Quest was life-changing for Dana and Ed. “My mouth was hanging open,” Ed said. Together they found hope and a whole new outlook. They changed their diets AND their way of living – patching relationships and reconnecting with each other.
