Iam doing really good,my prayers are with everyone that has to go through all the treatments.  The most vital thing for me was support!  Then the hair loss,which I can say I laugh about today.  Good Luck to all! :-)

Hi Lois Ann-
Welcome! You are an old timer already! Michelle pointed you in the right place, you can see our roll calls and learn a little about us.
I was diagnosed 11/99 and finished chemo (AC) 4/00...also did rads for a stage IIa ductal carcinoma...currently I have about 40 Tamoxifen pills left...but who is counting? I see you are hormone negative and her 2 negative...did you do any other treatments? Glad you are doing well 2 years later!

Hi Lois Ann, glad you found us. It is good to have surivors who have been through treatment who can encourage and comfort the newbies. If you have not already done so, add your name to our roll call post. You can read more about us there. Don't hesitate to jump into the conversations. The more voices the better. Welcoming hugs, Lauri
