Bella76,

I'm so sorry to hear of the new cancer. I developed a rare from of Hodgkins' lymphoma seven years after being diagnosed with BC--like you, totally unrelated to the first cancer. I'm doing fine now. How are you managing? Happy to listen/discuss via PM if you need a sympathetic ear/shoulder.

Hello Pip

Yes, I did have Herceptin - and the rest of the kitchen sink - and it worked well on my grade 3 tumour. Profile updated, so thanks for asking me about this invaluable part of my treatment.

I am hoping for the same results for you!

HoneyBeaw--The first year is hard, you're still recovering, physically and emotionally, don't hesitate to use any meds that will help you feel like yourself again. I was on Celexa for anxiety & depression for 2 years and 1.5 on Ambien, both I was able to stop when I started feeling better.

I am pleased to share that my wife is officially a 5-year survivor. We celebrated with a trip to Iceland last week. Making plans has always been therapeutic. So many of you stepped forward to show me kindness and hold my hand during dark days—so that I could be a better support for my wife. I wanted to thank you all. I also wanted to share my wife’s story as another beacon of hope for our friends here who are new to this challenge. Praying for strength and healing power for all
