*Abbreviations* for all our Newbies

 AC - one of the five most common types of chemo given to women with BC. Iit's probably the MOST common drug combination given to women with node-negative (hasn't spread to your lymph nodes) cancer. AC includes two drugs: doxorubicin (Adriamycin), and cyclophosphamide (Cytoxan).

TNBC- POST OP Pathology Report

H Everyone!  I wanted to share my pathology report. No cacer found in lymphnodes or the breast. The 6cm tumor was gone!!! I had a complete response to chemo, prayer and faith in God!  I could hardly  contain myself after getting this news!! The doctor still recommends radiation simply because it was TNBC.  I continue to pray for all of my BC sisters and chemo buddies, and I ask that you continue to pray for me.  We truly need each other during these times!!

Hi, now I am on 2 boards. Wow lucky me.  I am 75 years young and go to the Cleveland Clinic. I had lobular breast cancer in June of 2012 and had a masectomy and nothing else.  In July of 2014 I was diagnosed with MMMT uterine cancer and had 5 taxol/carbo treatments and 3 brachytheray treatments. I just had a biopsy of a lymph node above my ear and it showed that it is breast cancer. I also have nodules in my lungs that I am waiting to get a broncosopy for but they might not be able to get to it because the are near my windpipe. I will know soon.

Mom about to go for 1st round of chemo - what to expect


My mom is about to go for her 1st chemo session (She's stage 3 plus) and I'm quite nervous as I don't want her to go through the hell described by chemo patients.

Question is : any advice on the side effects and how best to copy with common side effects during chemo?

A HELLO and Thinking of all of you

Hello to all my beautiful ladies (and gentlemen). I am thinking of you all and wondering how you are. I haven't been here in a while and you're all in my heart. Please give me an update on how you're doing. I am very stressed with work (wish I can leave it NOW!). A lot of anxiety with some tests I've had but taking one day at a time. Hard sometimes, as you all know. Otherwise doing OK.
I hope you're all doing well.

So excited to receive my ornament today from MaryAnn in Florida -- a beautiful glass ornament that lights up!  Check out my Expressions page for a photo.

Thank you so much, MaryAnn, for your thoughtful card, and for such a sparkly addition to my Christmas tree.
