Barbara's Profile



I was diagnosed with tonsil and breast cancer in early December 2010. I had left neck resection to remove almost 100 nodes on Dec 6, 2010 and underwent IMRT and Cistplatin from Jan 17 through March 8, 2010. I also had 2 surgeries on right breast and 3 weeks of radiation ending the end of March 2010. I am now working to regain strength. This has been a surreal experience and I have battled the emotional and physical side effects. I thought that I would be able to go back to work in July but am battling fatigue and still not eating normal...I miss going places with my grandchildren and am learning the real meaning of one day at a time.
