Re: 11 Years bc, 10 Year with mets

Shays mom,
What a wonderful post, thank u so much for sharing! I was diagnosed a year ago with mets from the get go, my second child was just three months old. I was so scared I wouldn't even live to see him turn one, but here I am a year later feeling better than I have in years! I know that this disease can turn on me at any time, but I have to live my life with hope that I will be around to raise my children. I choose to live my life with hope because the alternative is just too devastating.
