Hi sisters,

Just wanted to find out how many of us are in our 30s.

Do you have husbands and families? I found that aspect particularly hard while I was doing my chemo- keeping up with the needs of everybody else while I was doing my treatments.

Now I'm in the radiation portion and school will be starting in about 10 days... yay!

Say hello if you have a moment!

hi bc201838, I am also sorry you had to join. I am 34, diagnosed in November 2017 at 33...

It was a shock and I still have some days feeling sad but in general I am doing pretty good. I am sure you will find a lot of useful information in these boards, you will meet wonderful people and remember you are not alone.

Hugs

I just turned 32 and received my initial diagnosis today. IDC 4 cm. Biopsy of axillary lymph node also came back positive. I'll know more early next week when I meet the breast surgeon and oncologist. I just feel numb, this all seems so surreal. I am encouraged to see so many positive stories on here in women under 40. It's nice to know I'm not alone...

Hi iChan25,

I'm sorry about your diagnosis. It's never a good time to learn you have cancer.

Good luck with everything! The beginning can be very stressful. Take care of yourself and go easy on yourself.

iChan, I'm so sorry. I remember those first weeks after my dx all too well - and those were the worst so far. You'll see, when you meet your team and have a plan, it all gets much easier. There are many options, treatment will start and you will just soldier through it all one day at a time. Read through these forums, post questions, there are so many knowledgeable ladies. Take care

ichan I’m so sorry you have joined this group, but there are amazing ladies on these forums!. This coming Tuesday will mark one year since my dr found my lump, 4 short weeks later I had an officially diagnosis. It is definitely surreal, and it still feels that way I never thought I’d be a cancer survivor at 33. But I agree with other posters that this is the scariest time because there’s so many unknowns. Once you have a team and a plan it will feel a little easier. I wish you the best, know you’re not alone and reach out with any questions!

I just wanted to send some love to all the mothers with little kids out there! It's so incredibly hard to process all the thoughts and feelings about cancer when you have babies and toddlers and not a single moment of down time. My son had just turned 1 and my twins were 2 when I was diagnosed. My son is almost 5 now and my twins are 6 and I'm still here! I am hoping to graduate to the 40's thread as well in 15 months. Not a day goes by that I don't think about cancer but it no longer dominates my waking moments. "There but for the grace of God, go I."
