I can't really tell you about these percentages because if they are from two different sources. They may be evaluating different facts or figures.
The thing that used to send me right over the edge was reading too much on the internet. I found it to be horribly depressing so why add to my burden? I just quit doing that and focused on the positive. If I were you, I wouldn't get too wrapped up in statistics. You are NOT a number, you are special and unique! Keep your eye on getting well, and living every minute to fullest. Focus on the good and positive, you will enjoy life a whole lot more. If you have been diagnosed with breast cancer, please remember, we have all been where you are. We are a group of supportive women and prop each other up before, during, and after. Hang in there, darlin' and paste a smile on your face even if you don't feel like it! (lipstick also helps!)
