I had a core needle biopsy on my lumpectomy breast on Wednesday. Waiting for results is worse than the procedure.

Thanks very much. The radiologist called and it is cancer. She is setting me up with a surgeon. My husband is playing golf and does not know yet.

Jestjoan,

One day at a time. I was 16 years out from my initial diagnosis and they found the little buggers in my liver in May. The initial shock was pretty awful, but I'm learning to live with it and to research any and all treatments. Good luck.

Tried to use the private message link to mods.....

Welcome to the Global Premiere of the Hope for Breast Cancer - [H4BC] for short.

We are hosting a 5-Day Global Screening Event and you can watch this heartfelt, groundbreaking documentary as many times as you want from November 6-10!

* Keep an eye out for an email from us on Nov 6 with a special access link so you can watch the movie.*

Please note that Hope for Breast Cancer is not a documentary series. It is a full-length feature film being sent to film festivals and you get the opportunity to watch it FIRST.

#SpoilerAlert - move over Marvel - our end credits are next level! ;)
