Dear friends,
It is so nice to hear that Sheila is remember, missed and loved. She put her heart and soul into this thread.
It was the second thread I joined on BCO, and it is where I met wonderful ladies from all over.
Sugar77, you have known Sheila longer than I have. I joined in 2011.
I had the privilege of attending her funeral mass and of meeting her beautiful daughters. It was a difficult day...but afterwards I remember feeling peaceful, that all that could have been done had been done...and that she is now at peace. I miss her.
I am mostly on Facebook now with a few BCO friends. But I like to check in.
I am always happy to see familiar sisters (Hi Lucy55), and others who are new to me (farmerlucy, Sugar, Cindy, Stella).
May Sheila's spirit of acceptance, sunshine and love be present here, and may many more women come
to find answers that help, and friendships that last a lifetime.

If anyone is visiting for the first time, I do hope you will come back and get to know some of the ladies here.
It is a great place to get questions answered and to share the challenges of living with breast cancer.

My surgeon told me it’s just DCIS it won’t kill you. She didn’t know until the lumpectomy it was micro invasive cancer. Preferred treatment is the same but why do they tell you that when they can’t know till they get the whole mass?

So was mine. However, there was some disagreement among the professionals about preliminary diagnosis. I wanted mastectomy from the beginning, because righty had always been troublesome. Just before surgery they discovered that the DCIS was so widespread that mastectomy was the only option. It was so fast-growing that the surgeon later told me that she had thought it was HER2+. Frustrated that they refuse to do that part of the biopsy analysis until they find invasive C. It belittles the danger presented by little c (carcinoma). They need to prepare patients better.

Sorry for the disappointment. Sometimes we can only prepare for the worst, but pray for the best.

Hello everyone I did the double mx, it was a good choice IDC and ILC both breast. First Diagnosis was left breast IDC march 2019. I had a scare this month but got good news yesterday. So I am very Happy. Hope everyone here stays cancer free going forward. To explain I had another growth 6mm by 6mm by 4mm after just finishing my implant surgery on December 2019. I couldn't believe it. Had ultrasound then had to wait ten days for core needle biopsy but I got the report from my doctor really fast within 36 hours. Negative thank God.
