Hi Liz, I just was reading your post under the update on Denise. Sorry that kind of scared you. Denise's problems are totally different than usual. She lives in South Wales, and we cannot understand how different things are done there in regards to the medical system. Please don't let her situation scare you about your diagnoses. You have found a great place for support here, and there are lots of different experiences and knowledge. Chances are whatever you go through, someone here can help you with it. I am sorry you had to find us, but you are most welcome to come here and talk, laugh, cry, vent etc. You can look above the posts at the roll call posts and learn about many of us. Maybe someone lives near you if you want to talk in person. Would you tell us a little about yourself if you are comfortable doing so? You said you were recently diagnosed, do you know what type and stage your cancer is? Just share what you want, and know we will do all we can to help. Take care. L&H, Gail

Hi Liz-
I responded to you under the thread about Denise...I tried to post a real welcome but locked up...but anyway, glad you found us. We have a roll call posted at the top, you might find others with similar ages, diagnoses, home towns, etc.

HI Liz, I just wanted to add my welcome. You will find this a warm and inviting place to be, so I hope you can hang around for a while. Hugs, Lauri

Welcome Liz,

Sorry my post about Denise scared you. As Gail and Lori have said, her situation is somewhat unusual. Anyway, most of us have had breast cancer treatment in one form or another. I'm sure you'll find women on board who have had similar experiences. We're all here to help.

thank you for the welcome

My doctor says I have the garden variety BC, whatever that means.

I have several appointments next week so I will learn more then.

Again sorry to read that Denise has had so many problems, I wasn't sure BC could affect someone like that but I have alot to learn.

Also sorry to read you have recently lost some members.  So nice of you to send flowers to that one girl.
