I have a new boob and I didn't have to marry it or vote for it! LOL I am a 5 1/2 year Survivor of Stage 3 Invasive Lobular breast cancer. Diagnosed in July 2007 with cancer in my left breast. From the beginning, I KNEW I was not going to die. It was only a journey I was meant to go through. I had 6 sessions of aggressive chemo, a lumpectomy, then a single mastectomy followed by 7 weeks of radiation. I was very lucky. I never got really sick. I didn't miss a day of work. (However, I...

(However, I did miss my hair! ) My body had cancer but cancer did not have Me. Sense of humor in so so very important! And it's okay to let others help you. It was the hardest part of cancer for me. You will be amazed at how much support you will receive from family, friends and even strangers. Stay positive and don't forget to laugh! You WILL get through this!

In 2003, after I returned to work after a radical prostectomy , my wife was found to have breast cancer in both breasts. She had a radical mastectomy , both breasts . I had to bring her home 11 hours after the surgery. She was a trooper but changing her bandages almost made me I'll. we hung in there together and after reconstruction we are both back to normal. When you love someone you can handle anything. Early section saved both of us so men and women need to pay attention to these bodies...

We survived.

I am a born again christian for 4 years now and I am blessed that the cancer was found in a stage where no treatment was needed. Everyday I thank God for healing me and my life has never been the same. I URGE ALL WOMEN SCARED OR NOT TO GO AND HAVE A MAMMO EACH YEAR. It could save your life. I pray for all the women still battling this horrific disease. God be with you and my blessings to you all. You can be afraid and have the mammo at the same time. Just go each year and have one. God Bless You All that are battling this disease.

My grandma suffered twice of breast cancer, the first time was terrible, she wasn't diagnosed correctly, she was told that the lumps she felt where just fat. A couple month passed and she couldn't bear the pain, she had to go to a private oncologist to be told that her cancer was severely advanced but still operable; she lost her breast and her lymph nods. Chemo was harsh she was an extremely active person and this put her down. After some years lumps appeared in her other breast, and...

My grandma suffered twice of breast cancer, the first time was terrible, she wasn't diagnosed correctly, she was told that the lumps she felt where just fat. A couple month passed and she couldn't bear the pain, she had to go to a private oncologist to be told that her cancer was severely advanced but still operable; she lost her breast and her lymph nods. Chemo was harsh she was an extremely active person and this put her down. After some years lumps appeared in her other breast, and everything started again. But been a warrior as she is she overcome twice the big 'C', as many call it. She's fine and happy now with my grandfather living near a wonderful beach, enjoying life. With love and support anyone can overcome anything.

Although I had yearly mammograms, I only occasionally checked myself. When my Nurse-Practitioner gave me a Pap test, she said she would also examine my breasts. I told her this was unnecessary as my mammograms were fine. She persevered, and felt a lump that turned out to be Stage 2 breast cancer. The lump could only be felt lying horizontally, not vertically. That was 6 years ago, and I am still so full of gratitude to my N.P. Brenda Curry-McKeon.

My mother passed away on 12/26/2004 after a ten year battle with cancer, it wasn't breast cancer but cancer is cancer right ? The outcome and treatments are pretty much the same ! She died after giving chemo and radiation the last four years of her life but she taught all seven of us kids to never give up no matter what and that's why I'm posting this so you , whoever you are never gives up
