I just wanted to introduce myself, I am Crystal. I found this board a few days ago and enjoy reading and learning about this thing called cancer that has brought us all here. I was dx in Dec 2011 after having a breast reduction, which is when the cancer was found. I am 33 years old married and have 4 wonderful children, they range in age from 6 to 12. They are all healthy and for that I am thankful. I have had 5 surgeries (including bilateral mastectomy) and currently have TE in place, I have only had them a couple weeks but so far so good. I did 5 months of chemo and am currently taking Tamoxifen. I also did the genetic testing and that came back positive, but as far as anyone knows I am the first in the family for breast or ovarian cancer..Have a great Thanksgiving and remember lets be thankful for just 1 more day because there are others who would love just 1 more day....
