Hello! I am not a lady, but I am female-bodied, and I identify as non-binary (they/them). Hope that's okay.........
I am 30 years old and just recently diagnosed with stage IV mets in my liver, spine, and lymph nodes—including neck and breast wall. I was originally diagnosed with stage 2 in 2016 at age 27, but went into remission after chemo.
I am looking to start treatment soon and was also told that I should never have children because I am ER+, PR+ still. That's devastating to me, especially since my wife has had failing fertility treatments and she's older at age 42. We're stopping with fertility for now but will pick up with her later in the year. Plus considering adoption.
There is a young breast cancer support group that I need to start going to again, but i hate that I have social anxiety. I’m lonely in regards to this cancer crap.......
Anyway, nice to meet y'all!
