Ductile Cancer

I was diagnosised with ductile cancer today.  I'm really scared as I am a single parent of a 12 year old daughter.  I have survived cancer twice already.  At age 27 I had cervical cancer and at 57 I had melanomia but having just turning 60, this really has me scared.  I can't see a surgeon until July 15th and I don't want to tell my daughter until I have more information.  I need all the encouragement I can get.  Both of my parents are dead and I have no real family left.  Just a few good friends who are like family to us.

Penaleah,

I just had a double mastectomy after being diagnosed with cancer in both breasts.  I opted to let my friends and family know what was going on as soon as I knew.  The local paper even prints updates of how my treatments are going.  (It's a small county and news is slow.)  The upshot of this is, it has given me a wide group of supporters.  People come up to me on the street and ask how I'm doing.  I'm on probably 100 prayer chains.  So many women have told me about their journey with breast cancer that I've lost count.  Let people know what's going on.  Get your support group going.  Let people help you.  Involve your daughter in the fight.  Find whatever you can to make you laugh.

I was diagnosed with ductile carcinoma about 15 months ago.  I am doing fine without surgery, chemo or radiation,  Do not panic.  That is the worse thing you can do for yourself or your daughter.  I feel better than I ever have in my life and I am working through many things.  I hope that you have not had a lot of trauma.  That is what started my cancer and I know it.  Things have gotten so much better for me it is hard for me to believe.  Hang in there!  I will help all that I can!

Dear Penaleah,

We are both on the same bus.  I was dx at the end of May, had surgery and come the week of July 20th with start radiation and afterwards on either Tamoxifen or an Aromatase blocker.  Not only that but when I was 27 (also) I had cancer of the cervix and in 2000 had a large operation on my back for malignant melanoma.  Now here I sit at age 56 reading you which could be me. 

I call this DCIS cancer the whimpy breast cancer if caught early in time which I hope yours is.  What stage are you at?  If stage 0 you are the lucky one like myself and won't need chemo.  I would be glad to be the wind on your back here and both of us could go to radiation together via this website.  The best web site I found of accurate information is www.BreastCancer.org which I highly reccmmend.

Let me know how you are doing.

JaeAnn

This message is for Queeny, who says she is fine without surgery, chemo, or radiation.  Please tell me what you have been doing since your diagnosis.  So far I am opting to avoid conventional treatments too.  I am constantly searching for the "right" alternative treatment for myself.  I don't believe in "cut, burn, and poison".  Just  wish I could talk to someone who has experienced healing with alternative treatments or protocols that build the body's defenses up so that it can fight off this disease.  HELP ANYONE!
