My mother and mother-in-law both had breast cancer 20 years ago. Both had one breast removed (chemo and radiation was given) and were both told they were cancer free -survivors. Now 20 + years later they were not cancer free. The cancer has spread very slowing into the skeleton bone structure of their body. My mother lost her life in Oct. of 2000 and my Mother-in-law is now on heavy chemo again.
Now for my question: How many women have been told they are cancer free only to discover decades later they still have cancer?
I now want to get the word out to be aware if you have ever had beast cancer and you have been told you're cancer free of this disease. Ask your doctors on the slow spreading of breast cancer to the skeletal structure (metasticized ) of your body and eventually attacking lungs and liver.
please forward this message to anyone who has ever had breast cancer or email me at - email@example.com
