Red face Re: Third time in 19 years!

Hello TriciaK, you are such a wonderful inspiration to all of us. I am so sorry it had to come back again. You surely have had enough cancer in your life. I hope the Herceptin will take care of it quickly. It sure saved my life. I will be praying for you and I send my best wishes. Mary L
