Congrats, Judy! I just hit my 15-year-since dx anniversary on Wednesday. For those who remember Susan, she would have been celebrating her anniversary date as well. Guess I'm a veteran of the Cancer War. LOL

Again, congrats!

CONGRATULATIONS BEV!!!!!!!!!!! 

I think that you deserve a medal for being a veteran of this Cancer War!  I just finished my every 3 mo scans and there is no difference in them than there was when I was diagnoised w/ the recurrance 8 years ago. So Herceptin and I are still good friends!!!!!

For any of you that have had a recurrance and are afraid, just know that there are many of us that have been where you are and we are still here. Living a full life. Just don't give up.

Hugs

Deb

Deb, Herceptin was big news in clinical trials back when I was dx'ed. It really has proven to be a winner, hasn't it??? So glad it has given you so much time... and here's to many more years of living a full life to come for all of us!

Hugs...

Yep Bev, Herceptin has been around for a long time. I was in the clinical trial when I was first dx. I didn't receive it tho ugh, as I found out after the trial was closed. Did anyone see the tv movie about the dr that discovered Herceptin and all of the problems that he encountered just getting a clincial trial started?

I was diagnosed 5 years ago this past November. Will have my 5 year surgical "anniversary" on December 21. Heard from a childhood friend today. Her 38 year old daughter is year older than mine and she has just been diagnosed with breast cancer  She will have surgery the 17th. 
 
Sometimes you can't help but wonder -- did we do something wrong? My friend is so worried about her daughter, and I am reliving my feelings of when my daughter was DX at 33.  What a bummer day.

Judy,
 
Sorry about your friend's daughter and it bringing back old feelings.  But, congrats on 5 years!  I'm also 5 years out from diagnosis/surgery.  Next year will be 5 years out from treatment, along with several other milestones.  I need to have a huge celebration in 2010.
 
I'll be thinking about your friend's daughter and wishing her well.
 
Love,
L & H,
Kathy

This is just an update about my friend's daughter. She has done very well. Surgery started at 4 PM, WOW, and ended at 9 PM. Plastic surgeon did expanders and she is at home doing great. My friend seems very comfortable with all that has happened and I plan to see them on Christmas Day.

BTW, yesterday was my surgery five year anniversary. I have to say I did shed a small tear, but that is all behind me now. Probably would not have happened if it were not for Karen's diagnoses.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!!
Judy

Update on my friend's daughter -- not great. She is stage III. They are doing a pet scan on Tuesday. I was diagnosed at stage III, and I did not have a pet scan. My concern is that there's more to this than I have been able to understand. Her doctors are continuing to do a typical workup on her -- ecocardiogram, etc. but she is not at a "teaching" hospital. I have major concerns if the pet scan is positive. I have not voiced my concerns to my friend because they are both SOOOO upset. Yikes, this is upsetting.
