I would love to talk to someone who has been through what I am experiencing. Six years ago I had level 1 breast cancer (lumpectomy & radiation). I thought I had it beat, until May of this year when I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer to my brain. I have undergone surgery to remove most of the large tumor. I have had whole brain radiation. CT scans have indicated that I have several small lung tumors and a small liver tumor. Becasue I am Her2 positive, I am currently on Tamoxifen and I will undergo future scans to see if the tumors have increased. I have never talked with anyone that has survived over 5 years. I would love to talk to long term survivors. Most of the survivor stats I have seen are discouraging. Is there anyone out there that can help? Since today is September 11, I have felt the need to reach out...
