Hi, My name is Pam from New Zealand. I am new to this site and have read all you support & emncouragment for each other. ou sound a great groups of peple. 19 years after my original mastectomy for breast cancer at age 35 (and a negative node report) I now have mets in most of my bones & left lung. I have been down but now I am determoined to beat this thing. Currently on Tamoxifen as I am eostrogen receptive and having radiation on some spots in my back & pelvis to help pain relief. So far I am responding as my marker count is decreasing rapidly but it seems this thing is dominating my life. Any tips to help me to cope mentally with this?
