      The American cancer society has access to grants for women like your mother . She is lucky to have you . Also ask to talk to a patient advocate where she is being treated .

      Contact the American Cancer Society. They should be able to steer you in the right direction. Food luck.

    Has anyone had a recurrence in a previous mastectomy ? An identical tumor came back 10!yrs later in the tissue surrounding an implant where my left breast had been. Next week I will have a re mastectomy, followed by radiation and more chemo.

      afternoon Sheree.
      I was first diagnosed in 2003 had subcutaneous bilateral mastectomies for DCIS had abnormal mammograms again in 2005 had further mastectomies for atypical hyperplasia and in 2008 again abnormal mammograms had simple mastectomies lymph node biopsies with my last mastectomies the surgeon tried to scrap down to my rib cage and axillary area. I had reconstruction with my first surgery in 2003 I still have the original implants in place with my last mastectomies in 2008 my surgeon said it is now like I had a complete simple mastectomy and the remaining tissue was just enough as a skin graft over my implants. The surgery was a piece of cake third time around although more restrictions with movement and lifting for 3 months.

      It is impossible to get all the breast tissue out unless they go back to the radical mastectomies of the old days. My reoccurence was at the incisional line. Most important is even if you have mastectomies continue to have mammograms, breast ultrasounds or scans...I was fortunate even though I had a reoccurence it was always caught early and only microscopic invasive cells with negative lymph nodes. Have been on tamoxifen for the last three years and will be starting Arimidex in a couple of weeks for another 5 years.

      May God watch over you on your journey

      Exercise pumps up the immune system and lowers estrogen levels. With as little as four hours of exercise per week, a woman can begin to lower her risk of breast cancer.

      Yes!!!!! It is the one research proven thing that can help... Needs to be 150 minutes per week of aerobic - not yoga or palates- per week for menopausal women!

    Do you all realize that if someone Google searches your name in quotes all your posts to this site will come up? I am concerned! I am job hunting!

      Greetings Anoymous,

      I am so thankful that God has given me another chance at life. After being diagnosed with Triple Negative stage 2 A grade 3 Breast Cancer {51/2} years ago. I promised myself and God that since I was chosen to make a difference I would share any and all information about the journey I had to go through to get where I am today. Most importantly for me is that I want the world to know that being diagnosed with breast cancer is not a death sentence and that early detection is the key. I will always be willing to share my story with anyone on or off this site. And if any employer would not accept you for employment because of your diagnoses I beleive will reap what they sow! None of us asked to be diagnosed with breast cancer and know one knowes what is manifesting in their bodies. It's so sad that public records information is shared on the internet so why not share informtion that could save a life. Stay encouraged. I promise you that I will keep you in my prayers as you continue to seek employment. I feel in my heart that you will be blessed to find a job for who you are, including your skills and not because you were diagnosed with breast cancer. By the way after I was diagnosed I also started having luncheons, bake sales silent auctions and educational events at work in October which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month in order to raise monies for Cancer Organizations and to bring awareness to my females and male co-workers. To my surprise the participation by my co-workers continues to be100% and the monies raised grows higher each year. Keep me posted, Love and Blessings Your Proud Sister Of Hope!!
