Thanks Blondie for posting this- it will be such a boost for those young ladies who have just been diagnosed or have secondaries. I am a grandmother of 5. Congratulations on the latest addition and wish you continuing good health xxxx
Hi Blondie, I've only just started coming on forum again as I have struggled so much from the start and have been really down. Its just over 15 months since this all started with secondaries from the start. I know treatments are improving all the time and your story gives me such hope. Thanks for sharing. x 🙂
i just wanted to add my own congratulations to your post. That's brilliant news and gives us all a boost. I don't know about other people but I'm longing for Grandchildren, it sounds like all the pleasure and joy and none of the responsibility - enjoy every minute!
Thanks for sharing your story Blondie. So pleased that you are doing well, you are inspirational. Your story was one of the first that I saw on the forum when I joined just over 4 years ago with SBC, bone & later liver.
Take care, love Helen x
Only just noticed this post but wanted to say thank you Blondie for sharing it. Such good news stories really give me a boost. Congratulations on your new grandchild. Wishing you many more years of good health and fortune.
You've made my day. Brilliant news. Congratulations on the birth of your grandchild. So happy for you and thanks for posting as it gives us so much hope. xxxxd
April 2017 and diagnosed with secondaries to liver and bone in 2003 - still here and doing well! For those of you who are Her2 and on Herceptin - I have now been on Herceptin since December 2003.
This year saw a, surprise but very much welcomed, new grandchild. That makes four grandchildren that I have seen born and cherished since diagnosed with secondary breast cancer, something I never dreamt was a possibility in the early days of my secondary diagnosis. I have been able to see my own children grow into dependable, resourceful and caring adults and parents - for that I am eternally grateful.
i hope that news of my continued good health and fortune can give hope to fellow survivors and I wish you all the best luck in the world in your struggles with this disease.
