I saw that you snuck in a post under Tamaralynn's "hello". Glad you found us! Many of us have been together for years, and many have joined at various points in the journey.  Feel free to chime in wherever you want!
 
You can read the roll call at the beginning of the board to get a sense of who we are, how old we are, and where we live.  How far out of treatment are you? Chances are, there is someone here who walked the same path and can relate.
 
Welcome aboard!

Just wanted to add my welcome. You will not find a nice group of women to hang out with. Don't hesitate to aske what you need to know or to just vent when you need to. We all care. Welcome, Lauri

Hello!! Welcome!! We hope to hear from you again. I was dx'd 1.5 yrs ago with a rare breast cancer, that thanks to a simple mast. is gone, never to return in that form again. I was blessed. That was not the only blessing, the women on this board are wonderful and will support you in anyway you need and they can.

Hugs,

Candy

Hello Everyone!

Thanks for the great welcome. I was referred to this site by one of your own. Now, let's see, her name is, hmmmmm...JoAnn. Please don't hold this against me! tongue

I was first diagnosed in April, 2001. I had a modified radical mastectomy, 19 of 21 lymph nodes positive. Had 4 a/c. 12 taxol and 36 radiation. Everything was good until Oct, 2003. My cea went from 12 to 29 in 3 mo. Now I have a small spot on my sacrum. I am on weekly herception and navelbein (sp). This was quite a shock but nothing that can't be handled. JoAnn has helped me a great deal this past year.

I live in Missouri. My eldest dd, 3 granddaughters (Emma 10, Grace 4 and Hannah 19 mo) all live together along with Tigger (Shi-tzu), Bailey (Airedale) 2 hermit crabs and, as of last night 4 fish and 2 frogs. Needless to say there is never a dull moment. I am going to be blessed with my first grandson in June. My younger dd and her dh are expecting. We are all extremely awaiting the "little prince's" arrival.

Thanks again for the welcome.

Deb

Cathi:

I am sorry to hear about your having to start chemo again. Do you know what kind you will be taking? I have refused to have any steriod premeds because I don't want the weight gain. My oncologist was fine with that and I get a shot (thru IV) for the nausea that is not a steriod. So far, so good.
