sevenmonths...sorry you are here with us. We have a facebook page just for metaplastic girls if you would like to join us there too. It is a private group so you must ask the admins to add you. Metaplastic breast cancer is the page and two of the admins are Judy Spitz Batchelor and Bena Roberts. Lots of great info for this type of cancer.
