Avatar n tn Since she has grandchildren in college I am going to assume that your mother-in-law is probably over 60. When we grew up, people who got cancer died. If anyone survived, we didn't hear about it. We only saw and heard about those that died. The first reaction for many over age 50 when we hear we have cancer is to think we will die like those we knew as children. It takes a lot of information to overcome that childhood fear. Depression is not uncommon.
Avatar f tn Many of the volunteers at the NOCC and other non-for-profits are survivors. Our chapter is made up of long term survivors, short term survivors, recurrences and family and friends that have been affected by this disease...and you are right, it is up to us to make a TEAL September.....people don't know about this disease unless we tell them, we didn't know until it affected our lives!!!!!
Avatar f tn A second occurance of cancer in the same breast isn't by any means a death sentence. Even metatistic cancer from the primary breast involvement isn't that either. There are many Stage IV survivors on a forum I visit. I must say that looking "fit" doesn't have much to do with having cancer though. It seems to strike the "fit" as well as the "unfit'. The forum I mentioned is BCSUPPORT.ORG ... you might ck. it out and read the posts from the many survivors.

Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with Stage 2B, triple negative invasive ductile breast cancer (3 tumors) with some DCIS 2 1/2 years ago. I had ACT Chemotheraphy for 18 weeks followed by a mastectomy. No lymph node involvement. At the time, I was a 54-yr old post-menopausal caucasian woman. Cancer was non-palpable and did not show up on a mammogram; diagnosed thru ultrasound and needle biopsies. My mother also took DES while I was in utero.

Avatar f tn Once you have been diagnosed with breast cancer there is always the possibility that you might have a recurrance or metastises to other parts of the body. Another suggestion if you want the experiences of other survivors who have had all types of reconstruction you might ck. out this website where there is a section on reconstruction. (bcsupport.org) Good luck .....
Avatar f tn needs volunteers to help if they offer free or low cost screenings during Breast Cancer Month? Or a breast cancer support group in your area might be able to inform you of special needs they have become aware of in your community. Or maybe you could make some kind of arrangement (while protecting their medical privacy) to donate some of your poundcakes (wrapped in pink?) for women and their families to enjoy while they are recovering from BC surgery or going through radiation treatment.
Avatar n tn Everything I hear about lung cancer sounds so grim...is there anyone that actually survives and beats this kind of cancer? My dad seems to be doing pretty well now, but we are big believers in healing. Alot of prayers and have to have faith in God. He healed us many years ago and now all we have to do is accept it, believe with no doubt and thank HIM for it!
120574 tn?1240767840 t have the huge number of survivors to raise it. Breast cancer advocates should join with all female cancer victims and in the process of studying some rare ovca another treatment for breast cancer is just as likely to be found as if they study breast cancer alone. I hope this made sense. It is so hard for me to complete a thought these days. Anyway, join the pink to the teal and throw in a few other color ribbons and maybe we will get somewhere faster.
Avatar f tn It means you may have ovarian cancer, very common in breast cancer survivors. You should have been tested for BRCA1, BRCA2 PALB 1&2 and P53 genetic defects with your cancer and if you weren't, you need to be as soon as possible. If you have any other 1st (mother, sister) or 2nd degree (grandmother, 1st cousin) female relatives with breast, ovarian, colon or pancreatic cancer, your need to be tested becomes urgent.
