Women who don't have BRCA mutations could have other high-risk genes that affect treatment choices
It sounds like you and your daughter are a great team. And its good to find things to laugh at in this craziness. People often ask why God has done this to them? I like to think that God doesn't "do" anything to us but is there to help us get through the sH$t that happens to us. Hang in there. This too shall pass.
Happy Easter to you as well. My condolences on your husband's passing. I am glad that you have the support of your family and friends, it sounds like they are a blessing.
I'm a mom and cancer patient too. I am sorry to hear about your daughter. I kind of disagree with the previous poster. I think your daughter should take it one day at a time and see how she is feeling.

There are some charities that provide free mammograms to women with no insurance. Please call the American Cancer Society or google to start your search. Don't beat yourself up about your decisions in the past. You made the best choice for your situation based on the information that you had. And there is someone who is always worse off than us, but it doesn't negate what we are going t...
I saw your post and was wondering if you were able to get your mammo. Hoping for good news for you.
I am sorry to hear about your friend. My advice is to not push her for info, she is getting it from her doctors and needs to absorb it when she is ready. The best thing to do is be her friend and support her. Run errands, prepare meals, offer to watch the kids, clean her house, if she wants to talk be there to listen and let her vent, cry or moan. If she has o...
I had a tram flap. I also had a hard area which caused me pain and it was scar tissus. I think you should give your ps a call so he/she can check you out and put your mind at ease.
I found this site while doing researching info for my dog's bladder cancer (tcc). I'm also a breast cancer survivor.
