I had Stage 3A breast cancer in February 1987. I had a 22 year remission and then had a recurrence (confirmed by biopsy) of the same original breast cancer--metastasized to my ribs. That was 2 years ago. I am doing well now on arimidex and zometa. But still fighting.

Good Morning,
I also had breast cancer 20 years ago and recurred in the same breast in the same area and then the next year in the other breast. All 3 times it was a stage I. The following year I got ovarian cancer. Stage 2. I am now almost 2 years out from the ovarian cancer and doing okay. Gee, I think I have had enough of this. Don't you think???? Love Ya, Paula

Sometimes it is sad to think that I have had cancer nearly as many years as I have not had cancer. But if chronic cancer is my fate, I guess it beats the alternative ;-) Keep fighting Paula!
