Tests are Clear!
Hey Guys and Gals, Just to let you know that my pre-surgery tests are clear! One victory down, 2 more to go. Hugs, Jennifer
Dear Frinds, I got the pathology report from the tumor that was taken out during my quadrantectomy. The news is discouraging, after being originally diagnosed with DCIS, the doctors have now realized that 5% of my lession consisted of invasive ductal carcinoma. I will have to have a lymph node biopsy on the 20th of this…
I need help with a book (m)
Hello, my name is Heather Head and I am not a cancer victim, but my heart goes out to all of you who are struggling with this disease. I'm posting to request your help. I am writing web copy for a group that is going to be publishing an inspirational book of true cancer survivor stories. Right now, they are soliciting…
I can't handle this
My husband of 30 years was diagnosed with liver cancer in April. It is very far progressed. He has had a chemo infusion at UCLA & a chemo embolization at University of Penn.

In a better place

Done with surgery!
Just wanted to let everyone know that I'm home already recovering from my partial mastectomy and ask you to pray that my pathology report will say that my margins are clear. Will find out on Friday and let you know. I'm very anxious! Hugs, Jennifer
Diagnosed at 25 as well, looking for other young people
Hello, I replied to Jennifer's message underneath this one, but thought I would post my own as well. I was also diagnosed at 25, but recently had a 26th birthday. The main problem that I am having is dealing with cancer at such a young age. I am not sure what the correct etiquette is when telling people that I have this…
Diagnosed at 25
Hi, my name is jennifer and I am a 25 yr old legislative advisor for the PR Senate and part-time law student for whom the thought of having breast cancer was a distant one despite a very strong family history. I was diagnosed on July 24th and am having a partial mastectomy on August 5th and radiation to treat a ductal…

I haven't been to my onclogist's office in three months and it was HARD going back seeing the people/patient in various stages of…
