I was dx in May 2010 with IDC stage 2, grade 3, BRCA2+, ER+ with 7 positive nodes. I would like to hear from long term survivors as this has been a very scary journey. Thank you so much!!!

Hello sweetie, this is msphil and I am a 17 yr cancer survivor(Praise God), I had 3 nodes positive, I was in the process of making wedding plans when I found the lump in my L breast, I was also mis diagnosed, first they called me and said it was cancer, then a short while later another call, it was a mistake I didn,t have it, then after callibg my fiancee atthe time, to give the good news again another call it was indeed me, so I was on a rollercoaster ride.  My husband encourage me to write about itin a book and I did, called "The Healings Of Breast Cancer" A Physical And Spiritual Healing Of My Body And Soul.

Your story is amazing.  Did they explain how you had so many positive nodes with such a small tumor?  Such a complicated disease!

I am going on 4 years since diagnosis this coming January.  Lots of positive nodes (10) and triple negative.  I remember being scared and looking for those survivors on the board here with stats similar to mine.
