Hi all
I watched Good Morning America today and they did a segment on breast cancer, it was led by their in house Dr Timothy Johnson. You can go to and they have a special link that takes you to a site dedicated to breast cancer. It has several Drs including Susan Love answering questions about breast cancer. It is a GREAT site. I would encourage newly diagnosed women to go there for information along with us oldies!!!
On a second note for all of you that watch GMA Robin Roberts was diagnosed in July, had her lumpectomy and now is going thru chemo. She was talking about it today and about the fact that she would be doing her second round today. She still has her hair for now, but I assume not for long. She got very teary eyed during this segment (so did I) she is not looking forward to more chemo but is doing fine for now. I wish I could just giver her a hug.
Hugs to all, and welcome to all of the newbies.

I praise Robin Roberts for being so public about this.  It will be great for others newly diagnosed.  I will check out the site.  Thanks for letting us know.

It's because of Robin Roberts that I found my lump.  I hadn't done a self-breast exam in a while (several months) and the day she announced that she had BC, I checked and found mine.  I've emailed her to let her know that her being brave enough to go public with this most likely saved my life.  She will always hold a very special place in my heart.
