Hello Fellow Young Survivors,
Hey, I'm just at the far end of being in this category. I'm turning 38 next week (was 36 at diagnosis). For some of you, 38 probably seems 'OLD.' But for breast cancer it is considered young.
Anyway, wanted to see who else is out there reading posts in this section. (I visit the breast cancer section nearly every day...it's been a wonderful place to go). And I check here often, but noticed that there's not as much 'action' here. Just wandering if people are looking, but not posting, or what.
So if you have some time, let me know you're there!!! And let us know a little about yourself.
I'm married and have 4 boys ages 11, 9, 7, 5. Just finished my treatment (lumpectomy, chemo, bilateral mastectomy and ovaries removed, then radiation and the last half of my Herceptin treatments). Trying to accept this 'new normal,' but not handling it as gracefully as I did at first.
