Hi Karen-
I saw your post in the roll call, hopefully you had time to read a bit about us. We're all ages, stages and from all over the country (and we've had people from UK and Down Under, plus Canada). I'm 38, diagnosed at age 30 in 1999, did chemo, rads and tamoxifen (still carrying the tamoxifen weight around though), but all is well, thank goodness! I'm in Michigan with my husband and dog....

Feel free to ask any questions that you want, we throw slang around sometimes or refer to inside jokes. Just ask and we'll fill ya in!

Welcome Karen!  This is a great place for support.  I was diagnosed in Dec 04 at the age of 44.  Had lumpectomy followed by mastectomy 3 weeks later, because they couldn't get clean margins.  Chemo and radiation followed.  Reconstruction in Jan 06 and reduction/lift on good one in Sep 06.  Took Tamoxifen for 1 1/2 years and now on Femara.  Very happy to be alive!
Feel free to ask anything, because chances are someone else has been through it.  Keep coming back.
L & H,
