|Kathleen L. Good, age 53|
Diagnosed January 2012
Recurrence April 2013
Departed May 21, 2014
Diagnosed January 2012, Stage 2b, Lumpectomy, chemo, rads
April 2013- Recurrence with a 1cm. mets to liver and a derma-metastasis across the chest. About 1 month after celebrating 1yr "cancer free", started getting little skin bumps (skin mets) across chest and a tumor had returned to the same breast had surgery on. Ct scan then also showed a liver met.
June 2013- Liver met has shrunk 90% after just 6wks on Xeloda, Methotrexate and Vinovelbine
Dec 2013- The clinical trial I was on (for a PARP inhibitor) did nothing for me. The cancer has grown in my liver and now there are 3 spots. It has also grown in my spine and spread to my hip.
Had no genetic mutations at all, but the cancer mutated giving me BRCA 1 and 2, pi3k and some others. When they sampled the biopsy of my recurrence, that was when the mutations were discovered. When first diagnosed and tested- I had no genetic mutations.
Kathleen was a part of our TNBC Sisters group and has always been very supportive of all of us.
