Today I got some great news. The results of my genetic testing came back and I am negative for the BRCA mutation and any other mutation that is associated with breast cancer. While this is the best possible outcome on so many levels, the mystery continues as to why so many women in my family get breast cancer. More on that and my genetic results another time.
Today, I celebrated the good news by treating myself to a dozen oysters, my first since starting chemo, a glass of wine and a spring manicure. It turns out that there’s a Wild Edibles near the cancer center and they have $1 oysters every day from noon to six. It just so happens that I get radiation there 5 times a week! There is a silver lining to every cloud!
It’s not often you get to celebrate during cancer treatment and diagnosis but when there is reason, you better take advantage!
