    Oh Mags, this is too awful

    I am so very sorry to read this.

    Taking on another fight, when your're still battling the side effects from the last one; it just isn't fair. 

    You are the third person with CRC that I know to be fighting Breast Cancer. It just doesn't fit. 

    You are in my prayers.

    Mags:

    I am at a loss for words.  I am so sorry.  Once you have stuff down, what type, stage, treatment plan, location and that kind of stuff go over to the breast cancer board.  Those gals there are extremely informative and sharing and will give you honest answers to any question you have and give you their experiences with different options. 

    I kinda know just how scared you may be.  I had a breast cancer scare last January when the mamogram came back suspicious.  Went down to the University of Michigan Hospital for the digital, ultrasound, etc. and radiologist and ultrasound doctor assured me it was a very small fluid filled cyst and to do nothing about it unless it  really bothered me that it was there, etc.  If it bothered me I would have to see a breast surgeon, etc.  I decided to take their advise and do nothing.  In most instances, it goes away on its own.  The same thing happened several years ago and it did go away on its own.

    Again, I am so very sorry. 

    Love to you my dear friend - Tina

    Oh dear,  this news just hit

    Oh dear,  this news just hit me in the stomach, I'm so very sorry Mags. :(.  And no, it simply isn't fair,  especially after all that you've been through with CRC.  But as this new fight begins, just remember that you beat the beast down once, so why not again, right?   My thoughts are with you, and feel my arms wrapped around you in a gentle hug.  (())

    All my best dear...

    Dearest Mags

    I am so very sorry to hear this news.  While the folks on the breast cancer board will be more helpful about treatment plans, etc., please also stay with us for the emotional support.  No one loves you like we do!

    I am hopeful that Kathi M will log in here and offer her own experience.  Remember after she beat CRC she was diagnosed with breast cancer.  She beat both, and so can you.

    Love and hugs,

    Marie who loves kitties

    I'm sorry you had this new

    I'm sorry you had this new fight dropped on you, I can understand why some folks believe life to be a series of tests and trials to some end or purpose. I don't share that view, I think life is random stuff that hits you, while you're planning all the things most humans want to do. It's just some of us get smacked around more than others. In my case, all the genetic bad breaks seem to come my way. Familial stuff like lazy eye at birth, CMT, a neurological disease that attacks extremities, onset at puberty; and of course late stage crc at 49. I'm not complaining, yeah I guess I am, that any lousy condition that runs in the family, runs to me. The fact that having cancer, and the harsh treatments to fight it, makes one at a higher risk for another cancer feels like abuse by a supposedly neutral universe, but it is what it is. Yell, hit a heavy bag, get drunk, walk until your too tired to care[works for me], do whatever takes that initial agnst out of you, and then set your mind to dealing with this new hurdle. I wish I had words of real comfort, but I'm guessing you know how to find refuge, by now, when life overwhelms. At least for a little while. Sudoku and Xanax helps distract me, as does any story on the tv or internet about someone in a tougher battle for some quality of life. I know it can always be worse, and I know that if I apply my mind[when I'm ready] I can make my life better. My thoughts and hopes are with you.............Dave

    I'm so sorry. Cancer is the gift that keeps on giving. What a shock and disappointment for you. I just have no words, it's so crappy. I'm just really sorry you're going to have to go through the fight again.

    I am so sorry to hear this.

    I am so sorry to hear this. Did they tell you what stage breast cancer it is. I am not making lite of your situation but if it is early stage breast cancer that could be better than a stage 4 colon cancer recurrence. I am right by your side as you have been for me. I am at the one waiting to get my first round of chemo started.

    Cancer is a horrible beast, and I'm so sorry  you're having to battle it anew after all you've been through. Please let us know what you find out about staging and treatment options, and remember that a lot of people are pulling for you.
