"No luck.  But, there is an Atheist Cancer Support site on Facebook, and the HER2 Support Groups on Facebook overwhelmingly don't mention religion.  So, I'm glad to have found that.  The website support group pushed by my…"

"Yes you may as well, as they're no good to you anyway. Why risk any more problem if you don't need to? I had Femara for 5 years which doesn't have the same risk factors as the Tamoxifen. It targets all the estrogen the body produces,…"

"I'm 90+% ER+ and 90+% PR positive too.  Proliferation also 90+%.  All of that with the HER2 and HER3 overexpression, just made the cancer grow like kudzu. In September, I'm suppose to start Tamoxifen.  My doc says my…"

Profile Information

About Me:
I'm a 35 year old disabled vet with physical limitations from a spine injury and PTSD I suffered while serving our country. On May 14th, 2014 I was diagnosed with Grade 3 Comedocarcinoma ER+ and PR+ with a 6 cm x 2 cm tumor. During my double mastectomy on the surgery table I bleed a lot, and a second tumor was found behind the original one. It was invasive and had gotten to my lymph nodes. I also have a rare autoimmune disorder called antiphospholipid syndrome. Given the age, grade, type of this BC, unknown family history, and my son's needs, I followed through with a bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction. My procedure was on May 30th.

You see, I was raised in foster care following a very abusive childhood that left me with many scars. I do not have parental support to fall back on. But, I was lucky enough to find a wonderful husband in London during my journey around the world. He has been a great support to me and our beautiful son. Our son is 10 years old and has autism. He is non-verbal, and this puts a great burden on us while going through this process. We struggle to find a way to explain to him what is happening to his mommy, while also allowing me to care and time I need to get better.
