MaryEllen's Journey - a 5-part breast cancer video series from Mayo Clinic (episode 2)

Posted by @MakalaJohnson in Breast Cancer, Jul 5, 2011

MaryEllen Sheppard knew something was wrong as soon as she felt a thickened patch of skin on her right breast. She didn't feel a lump, but knew the change was different enough to get it checked out. A mammogram and subsequent biopsy caught her by surprise.

She had breast cancer.

Looking to share her experience with other women coping with this disease, the 53-year-old mom (and new grandmother) from Tempe, Arizona, allowed a video crew from Mayo Clinic in Arizona to follow her on her journey.

In this latest installment of Mayo's multi-part video series, MaryEllen will fill you in on how she felt after two rounds of chemotherapy and if the experience was what she expected.
