In November of 2017, I was diagnosed with Stage 3A breast cancer at the age of 28. With the help of 2 surgeries, 16 rounds of chemotherapy, and 28 rounds of radiation, I was able to go into remission in August of 2018.
Even though my cancer is in remission, the fear of a recurrence is always in the back of my mind. Because of research funded by donors, I am receiving top of the line treatments for the next 10 years to help keep my cancer from returning.
However, even with this treatment, 20-30% of breast cancer survivors have either a local recurrence or distant recurrence 5, 10, and even 20 years after their initial diagnosis. Distant recurrence is also called Metastatic Breast Cancer (Stage 4), and currently there is no known cure.
