Después de 5 años de tratamiento , mis ganas de salir adelante , y el apoyo de mi familia y amigos puedo decir que le gane al Cáncer de Mama .

I knew it was cancer. I couldn't get my doctor to do a biopsy until I went to Kaiser and they did it straight away. Yup, breast cancer with a 15cm by 11 cm large tumor. Oddly, my breasts were the same size. . I had excellent doctors, lot's of information, help in just about any area and the best husband I could ever want by my side. Keep a positive attitude and be cheerful. Honestly, I gave it up to God. 100%. leaned on modern medicine and my faith. I look for silver linings. Really,...

Keep a positive attitude and be cheerful. Honestly, I gave it up to God. 100%. leaned on modern medicine and my faith. I look for silver linings. Really, keep some humor about yourself or people hate to be around you. If I was going to die, I wasn't taking everybody I loved down some long burden of negativity. I learned that from my dad who was philosophical about dying. You can handle the chemo and the baldness and the weight changes. Big deal really. Hair grows back, I gained like 50 pounds but it is coming off, my hair is great, and I kept most of my friends. Some just disappeared; be ready for that. It hurts, but THEIR loss. Make yourself happy!

Thank you to all the women who went before me. Your aggressive attitude in batteling the disease has allowed doctors to to get where we are today with proper dosing and surgical techniques. We all owe you a debt of gratitude. God bless you all!

My Aunt Had Breast Cancer. She wanted it to be definitely gone, and she told the doctor to take her whole breast out. She won, it seemed. She survivied more than five years after that. I don't remember how many years it was, but she got cancer again. I don't think it was in her breast, but it was in the kidneys or that area. But, people kept saying that the cancer came back. I don't understand, I wonder if it was a separate issue of cancer. People kept saying it came back, and they...

I don't understand, I wonder if it was a separate issue of cancer. People kept saying it came back, and they couldn't remove it, so she died from the 'breast cancer'. I am very sad that the cancer 'came back'. Aunt Bev fought against it to the best of her abilty.

My maternal grandmother died of breast cancer. I did not know her--she died before I was born.

I was diagnosed on April 17, 1995. I had left radical mastectomy. My cancer was very aggressive on. I was 31 years old. I had chemotherapy and radiotherapy as well, and...I still alive. Afterwards, my mother who died on 5 January 2013, just 15 days ago, had breast cancer, and my aunt, and three cousins, .... we are a family fighting with cancer everyday of our lives.

I was diagnosed on March 21, 2000. I had 3 operations within a year and a half and chemotherapy. I was adamant about a bilateral mastectomy and believe that due to my rigorous treatment plan, tremendous support from family, friends, the school I taught in, and my faith I am 13 years in remission. As I tell my high school students... I may be small but I am mighty!
