Hi, u didn't leave a name but I am encouraged by the 'Ihavefaith' because along w/ chemo,radiation,surgery and meds like Tamoxifen faith is what it takes! I'm 41 now, praise God, I was diagnosed 2 1/2 yrs ago w/ breast cancer ER+PR+HER2NU w/ 13 out of 27+ lymph nodes. My advice, look to God for strength, keep your focus on what he wants from you, keep a positive attitude(u can see all this on my web pg in more detail) and don't look at the %'s. We're all going to die, you've just been awakened to that fact, take advantage of it. Your days were #'ed before the diagnoses, they r still #'ed and the # didn't change. Be thankful u were'nt a victim of the sniper or in the twin towers. You see my point? We are only promised today now u r aware of it so make the most of every day! You've gotten through the worst part, the adriamycin, in my opinion. AND all other tests are clear sounds to me like your in good shape! Keep praying and I'll keep u in my prayers. God bless, Hummingbyrd

Dear Ihavefaith,
You are not alone. Your case is almost the same as mine. Two years ago, I was diag with ductal carcinoma, invassive in left breast and DCIS in the Right. I also had both removed, went through 4 treatments of A&C,then the surgery, then 4 treatments of taxol and 35 rads treatments. I am also on tamoxifen for 5 years. Just to make you laugh a little, on top of all this. the day of the surgery I slipped and fell off one step in my house, and broke my ankle in 3 places. Talk about taking your mind off things. But on the overall, everything is fine. Life goes on, we must keep the faith in the Lord. Think positive and smile a lot. and treasure each moment that we have. If you ever want to talk. My email address is: hotred52@aol.com, or you can reach me here. Chin up!!!
