Drinks and Positivity: A Breast Cancer Blog, Day 15 - Honey I Shrunk The Cancer

This past summer SheWired contributor and our friend Tatum de Roeck was diagnosed with breast cancer. The co-host of Cherry Bomb and her own interview style show on SheWired T-Time With Tatum began blogging about her experience shortly after her diagnosis. Via her writing, she shares the intimate details of taking breast cancer one step at a time in a blog that is incredibly emotional and moving but always infused with Tatum's lightning-quick wit and her ability to remain positive.

This past summer SheWired contributor and our friend Tatum de Roeck was diagnosed with breast cancer. The co-host of Cherry Bomb and of her own interview style show on SheWired T-Time with Tatum began blogging about her experience shortly after her diagnosis. Via her writing, she shares the intimate details of taking breast cancer one step at a time in a blog that is incredibly emotional and moving but always infused with Tatum's lightning-quick wit and her ability to remain positive.

Tatum has graciously agreed to share her story with readers as we embark on October, Breast Cancer Awareness month. We will be posting her blogs on SheWired throughout the month.

Honey, I Shrunk the Cancer– written October 13, 2011

As a fun post I thought I would share the shrinking tumour stats.

August 1st: 2.9cm Length, 1.5cm Width, 1.5cm Depth

August 23rd: 1.9cm Length, 1cm Width, 1cm Depth

September 13th: 1.8cm Length, 0.9cm Width, 0.9cm Depth

October 3rd: 1.3cm Length, 0.8cm Width, 0.8cm Depth

Grand Total so far…

The cancer has shrunk by over 50% in length and a smidge under 50% width and depth. In more good news, the lump is not a solid black blob on the ultra sound - it is looking lighter, even see-through in places. Ultrasounds have their limitations because it can’t always tell the difference between cancer and scar tissue. It is possible the cancer is even smaller than the scan shows. I am being scheduled for another MRI to be able to see what it going on more precisely. I will let you know how it goes.

Fingers and legs crossed it shrinks more in the meantime.
