    So glad you found us. It's a great site. I really don't know what I would have done without it. Most of us read some of the posts before we joined. You won't be sorry. I was Dx in April and this site with all the wonderful member got me through and is still getting me through. Again welcome

    A newbie, too.
    I am also new to this site, but derive such comfort from reading the comments. I will be having a port implanted on the 20th...I hope yours goes well on the 19th. My first chemo is set for the 1st of Feb. Guess I'll be bald by my birthday on the 24th...not what I had planned! Look forward to future postings.

    Debbie,

    I know it's so hard to be patient when you are looking forward to getting chemo over with. Sorry you were sick, but hopefully you can now get started. I start chemo on Monday so it looks like we will be having it at the same time.
