Hello to all of you brave, beautiful women out there. Just a note to say that I'm now 10 years out from diagnosis of Stage IIIA BC. ER/PR/Her2+. I was diagnosed at 25 and at age 30 I decided to go to medial school. I graduated this weekend and am off to pursue a 3 year residency in pediatric medicine. Also, and more importantly, over the past 10 years, I married my husband and we adopted a beautiful, amazing daughter who we can't imagine our lives without. I am a long time supporter of and I am so grateful for the support it has provided me over the years. I love reading survivor stories and so I am now posting my own.

Wishing many happy, healthy days to all of you!
