I would like to share my story with you so that those who are early in this journey my gain some hope. I was diagnosed 7 years ago this month with ER+, PR+, Her2+BC. I was 35 yrs old and had a 2 year old and a 2 month old. I had a mastectomy and soon found out my cancer was in fact stage 4 and had already spread to my liver. I guess to say I was shocked and devastated would be an understatement. No one would offer me much hope at the time. My husband was and is amazing. He did the leg work of our research as I was initially crippled with fear. I ended up doing 6 rounds of taxatere with herceptin. After just 3 rounds no cancer could be seen in my liver. I am currently on tamoxifin and herceptin every 3 weeks. I have remained in complete remission. I know I have been incredibly lucky and feel so truly blessed. I was very strong before all this, a marathon runner and always active and healthy. I have been able to continue my active lifestyle and feel so blessed for every day I have with my boys, husband, family and friends. I no longer feel despair. I believe there is always hope. I never could have imagined that I would be here living such a full and amazing life 7 years later. I wish I would have found this group all those years back. I kept searching for hope. I would here a miraculous story and say "why not me", "anything is possible".
I truly wish my life gives one of you who are fighting with this evil disease some hope. And I look forward to receiving hope and support from all of you.
I'm not much for spending a lot of time on the computer these days but I hope I can be of support to you. I especially can relate to all the young Moms in this group. I have lost so many incredible sisters to this evil disease that sometimes it's easier to move on and try and forget but I know I must offer my support and love to you all.
