I am quickly approaching the one year mark here and have my first round of scans post treatment in a couple of weeks. However, the local newspaper has been running stories left and right this month in which the focus is young women like myself (I was 37 at dx). In both stories today the women were stageIIb and eventually developed mets. I know I chose a very aggressive treatment plan (BMX, AND, chemo, rads and Tamoxifen) and there is not really anything else I can do, but hope and pray. Pinkoctober is really bringing me down and I could really use some encouragement. :(

Dx 11/8/2010, IDC, 2cm, Stage IIB, 2/32 nodes, ER+/PR+, HER2-

9 years out from my official diagnosis today -- I am so grateful!

(My tumor was large at 4.1cm x 3.9cm x 2.5cm and I had one confirmed node. My chart noted an 8cm tumor?! I'm still on tamoxifen and still NED and keeping on mode. The good side gets and annual peek to make sure the previously biopsied fibroadenoma hasn't gone rogue. Happy to talk more about this if anyone ever wants to. I couldn't have radiation because of a family connective tissue issue. I honestly didn't think I would be here typing this 9 years out. Reading these 5+ years stories meant so much to me and still do so much. Much appreciation for everyone behind the scenes who have brought us all together.)
