Being diagnosed in August 2003 was bad enough, having made the decision to have a double mastectomy I thought I would be free from BC.  Unfortunately it returned in 2009 and I was informed that it had shown up in my bones.  I went through chemo, radiotherapy and am now having 3 weekly infusions of Herceptin and a 6 weekly jab to strengthen my bones.  I will be on these medications for the rest of my life. 

I am used to it all now, but sometimes, just sometimes, I get a little depressed and think I should take off and stop the family from worrying about me only to realise a few days later that the family would worry more if I was not around for them to listen to me and see how I am on a daily basis. 

It is hard sometimes, but you learn to live with it. 

I would luv to be able to help someone who is just at the start of their BC journey and show them that life goes on, as I am s ... Read More »

Im 21 right now and my mother is turning 50 this year. Growing up me and my mother never seen the same side it was a very rough relationship. The next little bit that im going to tell you I didn’t know until recently. Two months ago my mother found a lump, a far size. She tried and tried to get into the doctor here and never could, she finally got into a doctor in another town two months after finding the lump… she hid that from us. (Now to the now) After she went to the doctor she found out it was cancer, very big size lump, almost 5cm. she told us last week. My sister cried for awhile I cried for about 5 minutes then stopped. I realized within that 5 minutes that if we are going to get through this im going to need to be strong for her. She has been going for lots of test to find out if its anywhere else. Her surgery is on May 2nd this year, she is going to have to be on chemo and radiation for a year after words. At the beginning I di ... Read More »

I am 20 years old. Since I was younger I have always supported this cause. I believe the woman facing this cancer are strong and I am a huge supporter of that strength. But when I was younger I wasn't able to help much, just a little here and there. But now that I am older, I want to be a part of helping a greater cause. I want to know and find ways I can help. I know I may not know much of this cancer through experience but I know it must be devastating to the familys and the women themselves. I want to help. If anyone has any ideas that I can do to help other than donate because I already am and will continue to. I just want to be a part of helping hands-on.

Christmas eve 2009 my friends life changed forever...  not long after so did mine. 

I remember before the diagnosis speaking with her and talking about the lump.. her youngest child was soon to turn 2 so blocked milk ducts seemed the likely diagnosis..  she is only 37 it couldnt be any thing else....

The results came back and as we had all thought it was just a cyst.. but to err on the safe side she would go for a mamogram, better to be safe than sorry.

Thats when it all went wrong.  The lump was a cyst but they had discovered extensive cancer in the milk ducts...  37yr...  How...

I had a text message from my sister saying that BF was trying to contact me as i was away with my family for the christmas holidays..  i felt a flash of panic and tried to phone but her phone was engaged so i jumped on to face book and there it was  my BF had changed her sta ... Read More »

I first discovered the lump when I was showering a few days ago.  I didn't think anything of it besides maybe an ingrown hair.  When I checked the mirror last night, however, I noticed that there was no inflammation or redness where the lump was on my right armpit.  I felt it and noticed that it was under the skin.  It was about the size of a marble.  After poking at it, I realized it was probably not a large pimple or ingrown hair, but something much more.


I will be seeing the doctor tomorrow at 3:30.  I really hope it's not what I think it is.  Perhaps its just a swollen lymph node that will go away?


The  only person who had breast cancer in my family was my aunt on my mom's side of the family.  They say it was stress induced.


I will hopefully find out more tomorrow?&l ... Read More »
