Ive just read your post, and although my situation is different I know what you are going through.
I have SBC in the lung and am having chemo, now my daughter has been diagnosed primary breash cancer (I prey she doesnt develop secondary), and she has a 10 month old baby. She has had her operation (although she had to have another as they didnt get all of the margin), and she is now waiting to start chemo, That will be hard as somehow we are going to have to work round her chemo and side effects as well as my chemo and side effects. At least though we are at the same hospital, and her fiance will be able to work his shift pattern around her.
She has a lovely fiance and they are getting married in October so we are all working towards that goal.
Very best wishes
Somehow you will get through, I know it.
Hi marie I am so sorry to hear you are going through all of this and with a young baby as well. As you probably know, there is a lot of different treatments out there. I am hoping to have SIRT next week. Try to take a day at a time and don't look too far forward. The ladies on here are very supportive too. Sending you big hugs xx
Hi I feel your pain. I was diagnosed with secondary breast cancer with mets to bones HER2 as well when I was 24 weeks pregnant with my first child I was only 34. Hurrendous I cried and cried. That was almost 5 years ago and I have so much fun with my daughter and cherish every moment and development she is a HUGE distraction from all the crappiness. There are very bad times of course and it takes so much strength to pick yourself off the floor but I try to concentrate on the day and being a mother.
If I can help you get through this please do contact me and in the meantime big big hugs!!!

Hi Beepbop, like C I thought of the Facebook group. I don't use Facebook but a forum member, JulieD, set up the group, for all with secondaries and there are so many members now I'm sure there will be others going through treatment with very young children. I was diagnosed in my early 40's but I started my family when in my twenties. You can find JulieD on the bone mets thread or the cyber cafe thread, both are on this forum, or if you address a thread to Julie I'm sure she will see it. We also have private messaging facilities here. Good luck with your next chemo, I hope you will find it works well for you. X
Just over a month ago I was diagnosed with secondary breast cancer with mets to my liver and spine. It was an enormous and terrible shock as I am 37 and have a six month old baby. I have already had my first treatment - chemo with herceptin and pertuzamab as I am HER2 +. I developed neutropenic sepis after my first treatment so spent a week in hospital. I feel great now although I am losing my hair. Next treatment is tomorrow so I'm fairly nervous but they are lowering the chemo dose this time. The last month has been crazy and I can't believe how my world has been turned upside down, its like a bad dream. I'm new to this forum and would love to chat to other women with secondary and a baby or young child to find out how on earth you cope with all this. Any pointers about where I should go to on the forum would also be very much appreciated.
Thanks all x
