Almost Done

Today I completed my 25 days of full radiation — my entire right chest from breast bone to neck to underarm and wrapping around my right side and over my right shoulder.

Because I’m young — and expected to survive and thrive — and because my tumor margins were small (1mm), I’m getting a 5 day “boost” of radiation. Just in the area of the tumor. Starting tomorrow.

Five more days and I’m done.
