Hello, I have just finished my treatments, and am waiting to see my oncologist, hopefully to be told that my breast cancer is gone. Going through surgery, chemo, radiation is not fun, but you do get through it... One day at a time. Focus on just taking care of yourself, that is your priority now...You can do it.... many many many women survive!
Two things count in life How you manage when you have nothing How you behave when you have everything
Hi Jill, I am sending you positive thoughts and warm hugs from Australia! I was diagnosed with breast cancer when I was 41, and had a double mastectomy, chemo and radiation. Eight years later and I am happy and healthy - and I know you can do it too! Focus on all the wonderful things in your life, and the fabulous things you've yet to achieve, experience and enjoy. I look forward to walking alongside you on your journey, and hearing about your progress and your successes in the months to come. Love from Lyn xxxooo
Make everywhere you go a little bit better than when you arrived...
HI, I recently went through the same thing you are going through. I'm finished with chemo and just recently radiation. I'm still getting infusions of Herceptin until Feb. I just started Aromosin, the hormone pill I have to take for 5 years. It was no picnic. I leaned on friends, several mentors I had and family. My hair is just starting to grow back. I bought a bunch of wigs but I don't really like wearing them. Tell me how you're doing.

Jill, I am half way through my treatment for inflammatory breast cancer. I have one more chemo treatment to go. A radical double mastectomy and radiation is next. We all know what you are going through. My only advise to you is don't let your imagination get carried away. Breast cancer is very treatable. Keep a positive attitude and lean on friends and family. That's what they are there for.
God Bless You, I had breast surgery in May, and a complete hysterectomy for uterine cancer in July, of 2009, radiation and finished my chemo in November of 2009 and am on the cancer drug Femera and cancer free. Praise God! I too was terrified but once you know what your treatment is you will feel in control again. I know how important it is to talk to people who have gone through cancer and treatment. People who haven't, have no idea the fear and anxiety that comes on you, they just can't understand.
Please keep in touch and let us know test and surgery dates, so we can pray for you and keep you in our thoughts. Praying for good test result!!!!. Do you know what stage your cancer is yet?
I thank God for being in control of my life and know I can trust Him. Praise God!
