Hello :)

Hi, 

I am a member of a few forums but thought I would come jump on over here now where it is more public. I will do a quick introduction. 

I am Sarah 29 from suffolk, mum to five I was diagnosed with primary breast cancer at age 28 on May 27th 2015 while pregnant, I had a mastectomy then c-section, followed by chemotherapy x6 FEC and a node clearance then radiotherapy. I was in remission for three months before being diagnosed with secondaries May 26th 2016 to the liver, lung and lymph nodes. 

I am currently on carboplatin, just did round two on Monday.

Look forward to getting to know you all.

 

Edited to add: I am triple negative.

Hello Sarah! Good to hear from you and wow… mum to 5! They must keep you so busy.

sorry you’ve had to join us here.  I’m Helen, 47 mum of 2 and with bone and lung mets that were dx in Jan 16 after a 9 year gap between primary and secondary. 

 

It’s lovely to get to know new people on here and the more you post the more you get involved. There is a range of ages and lots with children. Do join the secondaries private group for fun and games. 

I read in a magazine at hospital yesterday someone saying that the docs/oncs heal the bodies but this forum heals the mind and gives the greatest emotional support… Definitely true!
