I was diagnosed in 2008 and now have metastic breast cancer to the liver and bones. That diagnosis was in 2010. I went online and searched the web for what seems like weeks non-stop. What I have tried to do is put together what I learned into a one stop place on the web. It is continually growing as I add more and more findings to this site.
Don’t give up hope. You are too important and your life depends on it. You are about to start an experience that you never thought you had the strength to endure. But you do and you will. Just remember that you are not alone no matter how alone you may feel.
Please feel free to contact me and let me know if you have any suggestions for the blog. Let me know if there is anything you want to know about that I haven’t thought of. You never know, I may be putting the answer to your question together as we speak so check back often.
One piece of advice – don’t pay too much attention to the blogs and websites that deal with death and doom. They don’t help anyone and they certainly are a drain on your energy, energy that you will need to fight for your life. I believe that these sites are there for the author’s venting purposes and that’s great. Whatever gets you through the night. Just don’t dwell on the negativity – it’s not healing.
So go – search through this site, comment at will, contact me for suggestions, go crazy and come back often. Share with anyone you know who has been recently diagnosed.
Be well, be happy, and be positive,
