    Hello friends!
    Just want to share that I made it thru my mammogram this week with the all clear, then a follow up check up with the surgeon for a breast exam. This puts me at 4 years out. Although I will always be leary of mammograms as I found my own 3cm lump 3 months after my mammogram (dense breast thing!), I feel I am being watched very closely and am more confident that I am currently cancer free. An annual mri, visit to oncologist, radiology oncology, and blood work every 6 months, Arimidex are my security blanket for the next few years.
    It will be 4 years on 3/21 that I stopped chemo - seems like it was someone else's life now!!!
    Just wanted to share some good news! Although at times I am fearful, I hope to relax for a little while - bought some colorful spring flowers to celebrate!
    Prayers and well wishes to all - Jenna
