There might already be a thread about this but can't find it! Was hoping to start one where people who were diagnosed young (20s/30s) could share their survivor stories, if you are more than a few years past diagnosis. It can be difficult to find people who had BC at a young age, and I find it encouraging when I find people who were my age at diagnosis and are now doing great many years later. I'm sure others might find it inspiring as well.

Anyone out there??

I was at the Living Beyond Breast Cancer annual meeting yesterday and met a TV anchor who was diagnosed over 20 years ago in her mid-30's and is still doing great! Her name is Lu Ann Cahn and she made an Emmy-winning story about her diagnosis. Such an inspiring story.

Hi All

I was diagnosed at 35 - not sure if that is considered young now - but I am now approaching my 51st birthday!

Time passes so quickly so make the most of it!

I was diagnosed at 32.

This year marks the beginning of my 13th year! I celebrated my 45th birthday this year.

I didn't have herceptin either, just surgery and chemo then tamoxifen.
