I heard the interview also. It does sound good. I was very impressed w/ what she had to say and how she was not afraid to tell how we felt when there was a new ache or pain. I was disappointed that her onco wasn't interviewed.

I think that she will be a great spokes woman for BC and possibly get things moving quicker. Maybe she is the ONE that will be able to get more research done because she will be in the limelight and will be asked questions about her health.

I, too, hated to hear of her recurrence and I sure hope you are right, Deb, that she will be able to make a difference. I didn't see the interview but I read the news on the internet. This was the second or third time I have heard of bone mets being likened to diabetes. Not curable but controllable. Somehow I think it is a little harder to control the pain and all associated with it and with the treatments. But then I guess as it progresses and diabetes progresses they both get a little harder to live with. Next question how many of us are diabetic with or without bone mets? Quite a few. I will be following the Edwards family with hope and prayers. MK

Mk: I agree w/ your thought on the bone cancer and diabetes. But it is an analogy that those that aren't fighting this dreaded disease might be able to understand.

I became diabetic thanks to the chemo the 2nd time around. Lots of fun to try and keep levels where they should be when on chemo.

Hugs.

Deb

I was saddened to hear the news, too.  But, they do sound optimistic and I love her attitude.  She looks like she's lost a lot of weight from when she was diagnosed.  I wish I could say the same!  LOL  I will be following her progress.
L & H,
Kathy
