After living with MBC for 4.5 years and brain mets for almost 3 years, I’ve officially been on every treatment possible, no more trails to try. My brain mets are causing significant neurological issues that are irreversible,


That being said, I know I’ll be leaving a strong legacy, that most 37.5 years olds would be incredibly proud of. I officially signed up for home hospice care yesterday but nobody is expecting anything to happen immediately; just prepping for the eventuality and getting the equipment to help me navigate around when I’m by myself, like railings around the toilet and a bedside table for my laptop and to help me to work off on,I still work remotely 20 hours a week!

Becs, I have followed your posts since I first joined these discussion boards. I remember when you accomplished your goal of visiting all 50 states, really visiting them, not just stopping at the airport. I watched the video that featured you. You have been a source of support for many of us here. I hate this disease and what it does to us. I wish I could do something to change things. You remain a strong force in this world. You have things planned, and you are continuing to live each day as it is given to you. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Taking it everyday is all we can do. But days like these are very difficult to process. No more pain sister. No more limits to where you can go or what you can do now ! Much love ~M~
