Hi Ladies,

I see this topic was posted in the Stage IV forum and I thought it would be interesting to see how it looked for our group of Stage I ladies.  I will start by saying I'm a 4 year survivor.

Have a good day!

Well, I'm not sure if this will make you feel better or worse.  Originally diagnosed with Stage II BC in December of 1985, in April of 2009 I had a mass removed from my rt eye orbit which turned out to be a met from the original BC which in turn changed my staging to Stage IV.  So I went 23-1/2 years as a survivor and although I'm now in treatment for the rest of my life, I'm still here!

9 months! I was told to count from the date of my surgery. I refuse to call it a cancerversary! It's my Rebirthday! This has been weighing heavily on me so God bless you ladies who posted that you're  20 to 30 years out! My mom is an 8 yr. survivor, though she was Stage 3 when diagnosed. I met a lady in Walmart who is a 20 yr. survivor. I'm praying for the day when we can say, I'm a 60 yr. survivor thanks to the CURE!

I also consider the date of my BMX, which in this case is now 14 months and counting.....I don't really call it anything - not a cancerversary or NEDversary as that not a date I really associate with that type of celebration- just semantics I know, but that's me:) It is like the "day of infamy" for me. I will not forget it made me stronger, and it changed my life (hopefully for the better for a very long time).....
