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 diagnosed 6 1/2 years ago at age 37. Still fighting and counting every day as a blessing. Determined to die as a cranky old woman who keeps everyone guessing at what I'm up to!

If you value your freedom, thank a servicemember both serving and retired!

I was already pretty old when I was diagnose (<1 year ago), but I have a friend in her late 60s who was diagnosed 30+ years ago. No recurrences and, if you met her, you'd never guess that she's that old. I hope that's encouraging.
