Re: depression with new diagnosis

Hi,

Be sure to check out the Inflammatary Breast Cancer Forum on the Board. I've been busy revising the list of Stage IV survivors in 'Calling all Stage IV Sisters" http://her2support.org/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=48453 Also, there's a Young Survival Coalition link in this Conference webpage http://www.c4yw.org/

There are quite a few 'young' survivors on this Board, you can find some of them just by glancing recent postings in the 'New Commers Club/Welcome Wagon' page.

It's sacry. But the treatment is doable and the cure rate is quite high these days. (Ignore old statistics - especially regarding Her2 because now we have Herceptin and Tykerb and many other 'targeted' medicine and/or special delivery method such as T-DM1.)

Be sure to exercise. Walking 30 minutes a day can do wonders. Exercise increases the release of endorphin which not only makes us 'feel' better, it actually aids our immune system.

Sending you good vibes. Do keep us updated.
