    Hi Skyeler, I'm so sorry you're going through this. It's tough enough having breast cancer but you also have a little one to think of which puts a whole new spin on things. I visit another board that has several women who have gone through chemo during their pregnancy and came out on the other side. We are all very supportive here and I hope someone here will have a story to share with you as well. The other site is called breastcancer.org. Awesome discussion group with lots of young moms & women who had their treatments while pregnant. Much love & lots of hugs Skyeler.

    Oh my goodness. I was 4 weeks post partum when I found my lump, and my baby was 8 weeks old when I started treatment. I dont know where you live, but I would get multiple opinions to make sure you and your baby are getting the right treatment. I suggest getting involved in a support group, talking to a counselor maybe, continue talking to us on these websites. I have a friend who was 7 months pregnant when she found her lump and all are doing well now. She had chemo during pregnancy as well. Hang in there...,let that baby give you your strength to fight this awful disease. I found my baby helped me get through treatment so much because I know he needed his mom!! Thinking of you and stay strong to win!
