I was just diagnosed 11 days ago at 33 years old, wjth stage 1 ILC, still in the process of developing a plan for treatment. The initial shock is wearing off and I am surprised at how well my spirits are, and coming across this thread has lifted them that much more! I plan on reading through some more pages later! Thank you to everyone who has gone before, and thank you for sharing your stories!

SLL, I keep this one thread open as a favorite, just so I can respond now and then, and also see encouraging stories. I don’t think any of us ever tires of hearing good stories! Wanted to tell you that I was dx w Stage 1 ILC in July of 2010. Almost 8 years later still going strong, thank God. Feeling fine. Took tamoxifen (for me, manageable,) then switched to Femara when the time came (also manageable.) There’s a nice ILC thread here, but my advice is to find a good dr and center that you like (It’s ok to get a few opinions if you want to,) and then feel confident and move forward. Wishing you lots of luck and good health.

I recall a post around the time I was diagnosed wherein a person asked why there were no long term survivors in this forum and a wise person answered that it was because they were off living their lives. A few did respond and seeing those survivors gave me great hope for my own survival. I decided then to come back every year that I can and let y’all know that I’m still alive and kicking! It’s been 7 years, here’s to (hopefully) many more!

My mom was a 9 year survivor when she passed unexpectedly of something else. Otherwise she would have kept thriving! :) She had multi focal (three tumors in one breast), IDC, ER/PR positive. I'll be back in 9 years with many of you ladies to report the same. :)
