Breast Cancer don't like it

Hope this help mine anxiety.

My 350 post is not what I thought it would be about, but my first post was about beaded square for breast cancer so below is mine for 2014. 

Get a Mammogram they do find things early. So after 2 mammograms and a needle biopsy in a month time. I was diagnosed with a early form of breast cancer Stage 0, DCIS on Nov. 22, 2013. Saw breast surgeon on Dec 4, 2013. Lumpectomy is planned for Jan. 2, 2014 an outpatient procedure. Possibility no radiation treatment. 

 I am being treated a Barnes in St. Louis, MO at the Siteman Cancer Center.

Here is a square for the 2014 quilt. This was on my to do list before I found out. The Bead-It-Forward theme for 2014 is "Turn the tide on breast cancer," so squares should depict ocean/aquatic/beach motifs.
