THE STORY:

~~Hello Everyone,


As many of you may already know, Jayshree was diagnosed with breast cancer on December 6th, 2013. For those of you who do not know, I’m sorry you’re learning about this for the first time now. It has been an emotional roller coaster for our family, especially Jayshree, as she had no history of breast cancer in her family.  It has taken a few weeks for us to process this news as we were completely in shock initially.  As you might imagine, Jayshree kept asking the same question over and over again, “Is this really happening to me?”


To let you know more information, the mass was found initially in Jayshree’s left breast during a routine mammogram, and biopsy later showed malignancy.  The next step was an MRI that showed additional masses in her left breast as well as her right breast.  After the MRI, Jayshree had an MRI biopsy in early January that showed the additional masses in her left breast also to be malignant, with no evidence of malignancy in her right breast.


Jayshree had a double mastectomy with ongoing reconstruction, on Tuesday, January 14th.  We’re thankful and keeping positive because Jayshree has one of the finest breast surgeon’s in NY guiding her through this process, as well as one the finest plastic surgeon’s on the North Shore preparing her for the lengthy reconstructive process she will endure over the next 10-12 months.


The reason for this message is to let family and friends know about the current challenges our family is facing, and also to let you know that I will be running the half marathon in NYC in March for a charity known as “Think Pink Rocks,” which is a charity for the fight against breast cancer. As a physician, I do my very best to empathize with my patients, but no amount of medical training can prepare you for when something like this affects your family.  Although I know it won’t reverse Jayshree’s condition, I’m running this race to help the fight. Any amount you wish to donate to this cause would be greatly appreciated, and Jayshree knows each and every one of you is on her side.  We greatly appreciate your support during this difficult time.
