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-

I often put mine up with a magnet with the grandkids pictures and those they drew us. Figure it is something to be glad about.
