Newport - My insurance company wouldn't cover my BRAC testing because I am adopted they said that since I didn't have any history they wouldn't do it, which I think is totally crazy. However, since I had 2 cancers they did end up covering it. I have my onco to thank for informing the BRCA clinic of this.
ER 80% and PR 70%.
DCIS, IDC Diag 4/12/11
Left Mastectomy 3 nodes positive removed 5/26/11
Stage 2, Triple positive (ER 80%, PR 70%, Her2 +3)
Chemo 6/30/11 Carboplatin/Taxotere/Herceptin Completed chemo 10/13/11
BRCA 1 & 2 Negative
Herceptin for 1 year - completed 5/10/12
Arimidex for 5 years starting 11/3/11
Right simple Masectomy 11/29/12
Take one day at a time and always try to find something positive out of the negative!
