I found my own breast lump and had a mammogram on 07/14 and two days learned that I had cancer. By the end of the week I learned that it was Triple Negative Breast Cancer, August 1 I started five months of chemo which will be followed by surgery. I will end up having a double mastectomy . I lost my father to Alzheimer's three months back and have a mother who is in very bad health. She is worried as are my husband and daughters. Chemo has has not been horrible and for that I am thankful. It was caught early and chemo is the best and most effective treatment for TNBC. I plan to be a survivor!by MajorsTrouble on 1:14PM on Aug. 16
My name is Angie- I am also a breast cancer survivor. My diagnosis came out of the blue-no pain, no lumps. It was an annual mamogram that found it. I had been going every year since I was 40 and at 46 it just happened. Turned out it was also in my lymph nodes-so I had a mastectomy, chemo, radiation, tamoxafin and femara. Chemo took a toll on me physically. I also have the neuropathy, weaker hair, chemo brain. Not a day goes by that I dont worry it will come back. If I get a headache I worry it is a brain tumor, a sore throat-throat cancer, a bruise is leukemia. I see a therapist specializing in cancer survivors now that is helping me. I was diagnosed in 1999 and have been cancer free since 2000.by emmygirl31 on 1:13AM on Feb. 18
I'm Teresa 37 years old mother if 3, divorced and still single. I am currently fighting breast cancer I've had for almost a year in December. The scariest hardest year of my life, am so thankful to still be alive. I was at stage 4 Inflamatory Breast Cancer. I still have it no mastectomy will be done since it has spread to my bones. Originally had spread to my brain and spine but within a month or 2 my chemo with Gods help got rid of it for now, who's to say it won't come back, only God knows that. I have a head and chest port implanted so my infusion would be easier to take monthly. I went for so meta bone chemo today it was not bad at all, I just hope and pray not to get the nercrosis associated with the bone chemo zometa. Chemo/cancer suck we all know that, I'm just wondering why millions of women are suffering with this disease, now in the 21st century?? Jmo. Only God knows why. I just want it to go away!by teresaonline on 2:32AM on Oct. 18
