about me

I was diagnosed with breast cancer invasive ductal grade 3 aggressive.  I am ER/PR/HER2 positive (positive for all three).  I begin chemo on Friday July 31st 2015 once every three weeks.  After that will be mastectomy and then another 3-4 cycles of chemotherapy.  Presently the armpit lymph nodes do not look swollen.  Breasts MRI indicate the cancer has not breached the chest wall.  I am 47 and turn 48 the day after the first chemo.  Size of the mass is 3.2cm.  If anyone has this similar cancer being positive on ER, PR, HER2, please reach out to me and tell me of your journey.

I'm new to this. This site, this life, these feelings.

Hi. Just like the title said, I am new to this. I have always concidered myself blessed that no one close to me has suffered. I knew it had to do with the fact that growing up in foster care, I never really had anyone close. A few years ago, I found all of my family on facebook, including my father. We talked a lot, got closer, but never truely "father/daughter" close. This January, on my birthday, I got the fateful message that my father was hospitalized with throat cancer. My whole world came crashing down. Within the couple of months since then, a lot has happened.

My wife has cancer

Hi, my wife had her lower spine removed in september 2012 and parts of her hip were also removed, only one of her nervs is left of the six main nerves. She has a lot of pain and is heavily medicated. Norweigian surgeons says nothing can be done to help her. I think there is a way, I strongely hope so. May be there is a way to replace the bone that has been removed? I would be ever so Grateful if someone could help us. Best regards John


Hello everyone my name is Kathy and I am the daughter of a cancer survivor. My mother was only 39 years old when she was told she had breat cancer. This was over 21 years ago. But I am telling you my story because of the new information we recieved from her cardiolgist about this drug. She was not informed of all the possible side efforts at the time. It was still in a trail period when she was adivse to take this drug for she chemo treatment. She was taking a double dose once a month for 6 months. From the begining my mother had change not for the better but for the worst.

I am still hurt after losing my mother four months ago to cancer

I am writing to express my hurt and anger when my mother passed away the end of February of this year.  I keep going over and over in my head what happened and how quickly it happened. I'm angry because I went with my mother to visit 12 different doctors these last couple of years and no one could pin mark why she was experiencing so much pain in her left leg.  She had left knee replacement and for a while she was fine.

Thankful for decision against treatment!

It has been almost 10 months since I was diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer, that the Doctor seemed to think was going to kill me almost immediately. I have not had surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation for this. I know the reason I am still alive is the Lord! Whatever has happened and will happen is in God's capable hands! Thank you Lord for all You do!
