hello, my name is laura and i am hoping to gain support thru this site. i am stage 3b
but i am a fighter. i have a jillion brothers and sisters and a boyfriend to help
but i need to connect with surviors in "real time". i anticipate exchanging ph. #'s with
new friends. i have heard a lot about some of you from my mate, eric. he has just now succeeded in urging me to this site. he tells me many of you wonder if i am real.
well, if we gain each others confidence, then i would gladly exchange phone #'s to
prove that. now, eric feels better and so do i! laura

    We are so glad your best mate was there for you in your time of need. Even better he convinced you to check us out yourself. He is a good mate for sure, thanks Eric.
    I am 5 year survivor of stage 3 with 11 our of 21 positive nodes. I think you need to see that others have survived just as you will too. It isn't easy and that is a fact and often times you will wonder if it is all worth it but I can assure you anytime our lives can be prolonged is a good thing. My son has changed so much in the 5 years since I have been surviving that I am so fortunate to have lived to see these days. That has made it all worth it.
    Glad you found us and I hope you will find it as much of as a help and comfort as I have.
    Be good to yourself, say hi to Eric

    adriamycin - been there done that. How's it going? I went through treatment three years ago at age 32 and am now doing quite well so far. You sound young so I thought I'd respond to see if I can help in any way.

    Keep the faith! Beth

    Hi Laura, and welcome to the site! You will find lots of support here...there are some great women here. What's your next step after the adriamycin? My cancer was caught by a routine mammo at stage 1, so I didn't go the chemo route, but had radiation. I certainly wish you well, and have no doubt that if you keep a positive attitude, and stay determined to win this fight, you will win!!! Thoughts and prayers, Cyndi
