So sorry, that you seem destined to be one of us. (I will not say "welcome"). The ladies on this forum will be helpful to you with the questions you have, and we are all here to support you throughout this process. I believe I know what you and your family are going through. My aunt, my sister and I were diagnosed in our 50's, however, my own daughter was diagnosed in 2007. She was 33 years old.
Let us know how your are doing.
p>s> Please meet Melissa in Roll Call entry.

Melissa, 34, NJ. Mammo/ultrasound BIRADS level 4. Anxiously awaiting appointment with breast surgeon in 2 days.

My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 35. She had 2 lumpectomies, a mastectomy/hysterectomy, and now it has spread to her hip, cheek, lungs, and skull.

Husband left me in February (the day after Valentine's-how sweet) and I am currently in the process of divorce. Luckily, our beautiful 4 year old daughter reminds me of ME!

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.

I copied Melissa's post from Roll Call so it would be easier for everyone to read. MK

Hi Melissa I moved your post down here hoping you would get more response. That Roll Call is so long that not many go to read it unless they are looking for something. There are some pictures and some good info there but it takes a long time to find it.

Sorry about your mom. As I have mentioned in other posts my daughter has breast cancer and has bone mets and bone marrow mets. It is harder to deal with a loved one's cancer than your own. Having a four year old will make it difficult when you have treatment with your mom so sick, too. I hope you have a big family that can help. We won't mention the heartless idiot who left you alone to deal with so much, although it sounds like it was before your diagnosis.

We'll give you support here if you come and post and tell us what is happening with you. So many young women have been through so much. I wish breast cancer (and all the other cancers) would be eliminated from our llives.

Hugs, Mary K.

Hi Melissa
I am sorry for all the trials that u are faced with. I am 43 and I have had knee surgery, hysterectomy, and stents put in for clogged arteries. Two weeks ago I was told that I had a cluster of microclacifactions in my left breast and i am scheduled for a biopsy on the 27th of this month. My mother have had the same things in early years and now she is 71. I said that to say this, we must stay encouraged inspite of all the trials. We can do all do all things thru Christ which strengthens us and he will not put no more on us than we can bear. It seems like a struggle right now but we must just hold on because trouble don't last always. We are here to encourage each other and keep one another lifted up in prayer.
God will fix it because I believe he will. I am also just waiting but i will not get stressed about the situation. Your trouble with your husband will work itself out because he will reap what he sowed.
