Since I'm Stave IV and will have breast cancer for life, I hate how it's further defining me as female. Wondering if there's a closed FB group out there for LBTQ and/or non-binary gender identity support?

Hi Lindsey -- I'm so sorry you had to find your way to our community. I don't know of a group like you described, but I wanted to say hi and offer my support here. I'm gay and I surely can't be the only other member of the LGBTQ community here, although the LGBT board isn't active. I don't know your situation, but I also wanted to point out that males can also get breast cancer. This disease is no respecter of gender.
