I am new to this group, I am in another group for Breast Cancer. I was diagnosed with B/C and had a mastectomy May 16. Have finished my 4 rounds of A/C chemo without any sickness ( Thank God ).. I wish everyone the Best in their treatment. And I hope that I continue to do well with whatever lies ahead of me. Phyllis in North Carolina

My cancer was Stage 1...caught I had a lumpectomy and radiation, and am now on tamoxifen. What is your next step? I'll say some prayers for you! Take care.....Cyndi

    I am also new today. I came here because the I'm not getting the support i need in my "real"life. Noone seems to be getting it. Alot of that is my fault because i have a hard time asking for help. A big part of it though is that Because my nodes were negative and I don't require any more treatment, people see me as OK. They don't see the scars, I have all my hair, I don't look i must be just fine. Even some other survivors, seem to pat me on the head, like I'm not really a survivor, because i got to escape the really crappy stuff. Like loosing my boobs wasn't enough.
    I am so glad that even though you did have to go through the crappy stuff, that you are feeling well. I hope to hear from you
