Cancer is more than a ribbon

my name is Donna Murphy. I am 51 years old and I have been “Cancer Free” for 1 year. I am a breast cancer and cervical cancer survivor. My journey has opened my eyes to so many things. I have learned that insurance companies do not care if you get your treatment, your biopsy, your meds, your surgery etc. Etc. It took me 4 months to get my biopsy. From the minute I found my small knot to the day i got my biopsy was 4 months. I went from 1 small knot to 6+ masses in my breast and 38 lymph nodes involved in the 4 months. Once I got my biopsy everything went so quickly it was like a whirlwind. I didn’t have time to think. I began to research the meds that were being put into my body. Drugs like Carboplatin, Perjeta, Taxotere, Herceptin. I also started educating myself about my diagnosis Invasive Ductal Carcinoma with Necrosis HER2+ stage 3C grade 3. I read anything and everything I could to educate myself on what should be going on, what test are appropriate, what drugs I should be on and their side effects etc. Your most powerful hand you can play is being educated about your disease. Don’t put all your faith and trust in your insurance companies or your doctor’s. You have every right to question your insurance company and your doctor’s. Never put your life in someone else’s hands. I will be happy to help anyone and everyone I can. You can contact me on FB Donna Hall Murphy, IG@donna.murphy.98434, or at donna.murphy28086@yahoo.com

Thank you.
