    Hi Sally, I was diagnosed with stage 3C cancer last May. I've always tried not to look at survival statistics. When I was diagnosed I made it a point to learn everything I could about my type of cancer. That way I could make a more informed decision about my care. Knowledge is power. Have you spoken to your doctor about your treatment options?

    Learning About Breast Cancer
    2 years ago today I was diagnosed with stage 4 invasive ductal carcinoma. 7 surgeries later, 13 months of chemo, 4 weeks of radiation and 12 months of femara, I'm still going strong. I'm not ready to stop just yet. I start more chemo in the next few weeks. But the best medicine I believe is faith in Jesus and laughter. You have to be able to make fun of yourself and laugh at the cancer. I lost a very good friend just before thanksgiving this year, she lived with stage 4 for 13 years. She is my inspiration.
