Invasive with Ductal Features



So you have heard the words “breast cancer” and “invasive with ductal features” and you turned to the internet and googled “it.”  You’ve been surfing around online trying to make sense of what is happening to you, to sort it out and to put together some sort of plan. I know, I did the same thing.  That is why I started breast cancer MyStory.  It is here for you so you’d have a soft space online to land when the hard diagnosis of breast cancer hits.  Take your time to wander our site.  In all your frantic worries of the moment, don’t forget to stop and smell the flowers (thus the photo reminder to the left that I took at our community garden). We are here for you 24/7 and you are welcome anytime.



Information coming soon.
