I was diagnosed with fourth stage metastisised breast cancer in 2013. I was given months to a year to live. The cancer was found in four places. My right breast 8 lymph nodes under my arm a patch on the main artery in the back of my head and has eaten out my first vertebrae. They removed it from under my arm and my breast. They gave me 10 treatments of radiation put me on tamoxifan told me their not offering me chemo and told me there's nothing else they can do for me. That was just the beginning of my journey.
