Awesome responses Diana and Lysa. I totally agree with both of you. I regret that this site was not available 5 years ago when I was walking through my own journey. Please know that taking the time to answer questions or add comments to this site is truly helping someone that is walking in your shoes or have walked in your shoes. I say that because you help me and I am currently a survivor and cancer free . however as a breast cancer buddy/sister of hope to many young ladies who are not quite strong enough mentally to come onto this site I share many of the questions and responses knowing that they are listening and becoming stronger as they continue through their journey.
Keep up the great work and wishing you and all our sisters of hope their family members and friends a very blessed, safe and joyful holiday season.
Love you all!
Your Sister Of Hope:)
Hi Alice. I try not to pay attention to the 5 year survival stats. Everything online is based on studies performed at least 5 years ago. And treatment has improved in the last few years. Have you been diagnosed recently?0
I agree with Diana. All you need to think about is your survival rate. Do everything the doctors tell you and take excellent care of yourself. Believe that your survival rate is 100% because it can be. Remember that God loves you and will help you if you ask.0
