I hope this message is allowed here. I just wanted to stop in to say hello. This week I am 20 years breast cancer free. I was diagnosed in 2002 with ductal carcinoma that had spread to one lymph node. I had 4 rounds of chemo followed by mastectomies, and another 4 rounds of chemo. I was a young mother at the time with two little ones at home that needed me. I was afraid and unsure what the future held. I often frequented forums like this one for support, and hope.
This is a message of hope. Treatment is hard, but you will get through it. There is a long life on the other side of breast cancer.
