A HISTORY OF BREAST CANCER

I found this article that might be of interest to those of you battling Breast cancer.  I didn' t realize it was discover as early as 40 B.C.?   It's a chronologicial stepping stone of history which may have some interest for those of you who care to wonder.

Thanks PEN. Back at you. Just replied to your latest post. Think it's time for me to make one.

New technology for early breast cancer patients

This is good news for our newcomers to the Blog or for anyone who has a friend or family member who has recently had a mammogram and were told they see something.  I know the technology has been around for benign cancer tumors but this is a whole new way of helping a group of breast cancer patients who have very small tumors and don't need to go through full blown surgery.  I hope this helps some of you to ask questions regarding this option.

Thanks for posting, Weezie!
Happy St. Patrick's Day Birthday to you! Mine is the day before! Almost Birthday Twins! :)
I have a great love for all things Irish...:) will be turning 50 this year...good grief. Hope you are doing well.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY CATHY. THIS IS YOUR DAY !!!!! Turning 50 is such a great one. I hope you think so too. Wish it were only that for me but as mother nature would have it, I was born 17 (almost) years before you. Believe me, if you get to my age and have survived cancer, consider yourself a very lucky person. Of course I didn't get diagnosed until 10 years ago, but to my Oncologist's surprise, I'm still in pretty good shape. Because he's shy he actually turned red when I asked him if I was an anomoly? He shyly changed a reder shade of peach and nodded yes I think so. So at that I took off to Cabarete Beach in Dominican for the month of March. I hope to post with photos for all to see. considering I lost my love - my sweetest of all in May, I am trying to keep it together and not cry every day. I am staying at the same place as we did last year. It brings fond memories and ones that are new as well. Contradictions of life. I can't bring him back but I can honour him by going forward. Love to you and have a great day and evening. Tomorrow will be bitter sweet for me. Hopefully a quiet dinner somewhere. A friend is arriving from Toronto today. Will be glad of the company. Take care. Photos and post to come.

That a Cure has NOT BEEN FOUND !

That all my ancestors who died were very brave in their fight

Keep me laughing

Spine

Feeling sometimes bitchy I put that down to arimidex. I hate the revisiting of menopause, night sweats, etc. Sometimes I just feel tired and can't keep up. UPDATE AUG/08. Not as tired anymore, but the rest is the same.
