I found myself on this site unfortunately as my dad was recently diagnosed with prostate cancer and have gotten some amazing support from the charming, and remarkably kind men in that forum. Not being able to sleep right now for thinking about dad, I've also been thinking of my grandmother (paternal) who died of bc in the early 80s and what she must of went through. The link to bc also came up as it has been found to present itself in sons as prostate cancer.
Anyway - this is all rambles really, but reading some of your stories has reminded me of how tough women are and much I admire anyone going through this - patients and their loved ones. Feeling a bit emotional right now (also 6 mths pregnant..) and wanted to say how I admire your strength and support for each other. :)
