    I want to say thank you very much for your posts Moth! For example, you have posted about how when cancer is aggressive (like grade 3) you only have one shot to attack with everything (paraphrasing) during initial treatment and that was very helpful for me.

    thanks for taking the time to post and share your knowledge!

    I would like to thank Cure-ous. She is so knowledgeable and shares her findings for new treatments on the clinical trial thread. I have found her input so helpful.

    Micmel created a great living room for MBC'ers to gather. We laugh and cry together. It's a very warm and cozy place and while we dread when someone new joins, we welcome them with open arms. Heartfelt thanks Mel!

    2019 what a beautiful idea thank you for starting this. Ditto on all the folks already mentioned above - Beesie, Moth, Lumpie and the rest thank you for all you do. I would also like to thank MinusTwo and Salamandra ! This entire community was so helpful to me when I was first diagnosed, literally a lifeline.

    There is too many to name. I knew nothing when I arrived here, other than that lump shouldn't be there. Today, I can read and understand reports and help others. Thanks all! Everyone has also been very supportive to me in my times of grief. I Know I shouldn't go off topic, but I sometimes do! Thanks for all your understanding too!

    I want to give a special thanks to Shetland, moth, exbrnxgrl, ParakeetsRule and the others who are Stage IV who give of their time and knowledge to offer support to newbies in the Not Diagnosed and Just Diagnosed forums. It can be a challenge for all of us to deal with the worries of newbies - many of whom voice fear about the very lives that we are living - and I imagine that it can sometimes be much more challenging for those who are Stage IV.

    Shetland, I haven't posted in your thread, but I've been following and am there with you every day.

    Many thanks to all who mentioned me in this thread. Smile

    I love this topic. I want to thank you Shetland Poney, she was the first one I asked for advice and she kindly gave me so many useful tips. Then, Moth, full of knowledge and suggestions on cancer and everything else. How about Beesie, with so much knowledge and patience to explain us with graphs and everything else that makes sense to us. Mel is the host of her amazing living room where you feel welcome to stop any time of day or night. Alice with her amazing sense of humor.

    I’m still relatively new here, but the advice and encouragement has been wonderful.

    My shoutouts go to exbrnxgrl for being so informative, down to earth, and positive in your responses. And, to Serendipity and LW who I “met” in my surgery and radiation groups.

    ET - aw, thanks for that sweet shout-out! You do a great job yourself of encouraging the peeps on the TP/Her2+ threads - particularly the newbies!

    I want to say that I love what everyone contributes - whether it be support, info, humor, a shoulder to cry on, recipes, personal experiences, resource recommendations, etc. - the combination is what makes this site such a light in my life, and has kept me here for so long.

    Aklynna - thank you! (blushing) And I agree with you, LW422 has been very supportive and caring.

    NorCals, illimae, SondraF and Lalbo - a special shout-out to you.

    And to all the other countless members here who have been so much help in one way or another, it truly is appreciated.

    The Community here was my best friend during my treatment last year! I got more helpful information from reading through posts than from my doctors, nurses, and even PT ( though she was the most helpful in person human). I don’t remember all the names, but I thanked moth within a brief thread I started by asking a question she answered nicely. I actually got to this topic by searching “newbies”, was looking for that checklist of things to do before chemotherapy to make life easier. I know it has been reposted several times. I was ready to stop thinking about cancer finally after finishing treatment at Thanksgiving, but a very good friend was just diagnosed with stage 3 squamous cell carcinoma and will be starting concurrent chemo and radiation for six weeks. I’m trying to be helpful and supportive to her, though she will be having different drugs. If anyone can repost that list or has any other suggesti9ns that would be great!

    Great thread! Like many of you, there are so many I could thank. I’m not a prolific poster but I’m a long time lurker and this site helped me so much. My diagnosis seemed so dire and it was hard to find HR negative, Her2 positive women in real life. A huge thank you to lkc for her messages of hope. Also thank you to Salfeldi for your friendship and your welcoming, warm tone.
