Metastatic Breast Cancer Scans

I have been called to share more about my journey on my blog. A few weeks ago I shared what a cancerversary is and why I celebrate mine. Today I am sharing a recap of my day spent undergoing a full body scan of bone and soft tissue at UC Health. I was diagnosed with…
