    I have stage 3C as well. Yes, it is extremely important that you get treated! Stage 3C has extensive lymph node involvement. Our stage is one step from stage 4 and could easily turn into 4 if left untreated. Stage four is when breast cancer metastasizes (spreads) to other organs, such as bones, liver, brain, lungs, etc. I'm not trying to scare you but I want you to be one of the survivors! Please get treated. Some people say the treatments are worse than the disease. Not true in my opinion. Sure, the treatments don't make you feel good....BUT it doable! And you want to live!

      Greetings Diana this is your Sister Of Hope Zandra who will always be here to hold your hand as I continue to witness you doing the same for others. You always take the time and respond to questions that in my opinion give awesome answers. I only wish that this site was available when I was walking my personal journey. The unknown of not knowing what to expect took it's toll on me more mentally than physically. Knowing what I know now I made a promise that I will always share my journey and be a Sister Of Hope for the rest of my life. You always touch my heart and soul because you are not ashame to share with others. I am so proud of the work you are doing even as you are going through your own journey. I can honestly say that you were definitely chosen to make a difference in this world and God has you on a mission. I only wish that there was a way to communicate on a more personal level. Please stay encouraged you are an ANGEL and remember that stage 3C is curable.
      Regardless of what stage we are diagnosed the one thing we have in command is this terrible disease called Cancer. None of our life's will ever be normal!!
      Love and Blessings
      Your Sister of Hope Zandra

      Hi Zandra, it's great to hear from you again. :) Thank you so much for the kind words and inspiration. Yes, it has been quite a journey. We belong to a club that no one would ever want to belong to. Only women that have been in our shoes know what we have been through or still going through. I feel so passionate about this subject and I hope I can make a difference while I'm here. I feel almost driven to do so. Yes, the emotional toll of having cancer can be even greater than the physical one. That is so true. You are such an inspiration as a survivor! I know God has a plan for you as well with all the women you've helped. You are always welcomed to e-mail me to let me know how you're doing if you'd like. My e-mail is luvshermusic47@gmail.com or I'm also on Facebook. Any one else please feel free to do the same. We all walk this road together. Peace and blessings, Diana

    Yes it is very serious. I am a stage 3 also. Without treatment, the cancer will spread to other organs

    Yes very serious. I was stage I and didn't hesitate to start my treatments. I'm cancer free but still having radiation just in case. A rough 6 months past, but I'm looking forward and excited to be a survivor and help others . Best wishes
