Every now and then I read a post on this forum that talks about somebody who has lived a long time with disease. I know there have even been threads with many node positive success stories and stage IV survival stories. These have been the most uplifting influences for me on my journey. In a world of breast cancer where…
Could lymph node positive survivors share their story?

Any high Ki67 survivor stories out there?

"The most ENCOURAGING things said to you during your journey"
Sisters, I think we can always use another "feel good" thread, so I thought this one would be a good one to go with... I know we already have a thread for the dumbest and worst things people have said to you during our journeys, but how about the most encouraging things said to or done for you? I've read many posts…
