anyone know anyone who has had and survived this cancer.  My friend just starting radiation after sternum was removed and reconstructed and mastectomy during the same surgery.

Looking for anyone who knows someone that she can talk with.   This is so rare her Dr's have never seen it.

I don't know anything about this type of cancer, but, has she asked her doctor's about a support group?  Possibly someone in the group might have this or know of someone that your friend could talk to. 

Breastcancer.org is a very good site too.  They have many, many different discussion groups there and she might find information and help on that site too. 

I will be praying for her and you are a very good friend to try and help her out.

Have her ask her oncologist or his nurse.  They usually can help out in finding a support group for your friend.  How is she doing now?
