Am posting after a long gap. Want to let you all know that I had my recent Pet scan this week and got all clear.

My first diagnosis was in 2004 and recurrence in 2021. I am on my 29th cycle of Fulvestrant and Ibrance. In December 2021. I had mets in spine, lungs, liver adrenal glands, chest walls. My latest scan this week showed complete resolution and complete response to treatment.

So there is always hope..

    I was initially diagnosed in 1997. 20 years cancer free, and then a recurrence in 2017. Still on targeted therapy but doing well. Aside from lots of appointments and tests, still doing the things I enjoy most.
