Thank you Jeanne!!! I share your thoughts and am sad on losing so many of our komen sisters and its maddening to think the Dr's still dont know why!!! The Komen boards have been so special to me that I want to continue giving some advice or a welcome to all who come here and FB is not private enough for me!!!

It goes without saying that you all have "saved" me over and over again....and continue to do so!  It is good to see some old firends post here again.  Jeanne, heard you moved to Alaska?  I have a dear friend who lived there for 11 years...PM me:-)  Ann and Marie, hope you are well!  Deb, you are a ROCK!   I pray I will see Sharon and Elaine in September, we all are truly are connected in a way that goes beyond friendship, with Tricia and Rena at the helm!  I have never posted here and not come away with answers, or the strength and support when I needed it the most,  and I thank you all for that!  FIVE years, here I come!

The first time I came to the site and read the posts I thought "not for me - too depressing and I don't want to be brought down."  A couple of of months later after my mastectomy, I think -- I looked in again and thought "ok, I'll just ask a question."  I immediately got responses and through amazingly, could FEEL the kindness and camaraderie!!  I was so surprised and it felt so good....so here I am 5 years later, so grateful for all of you.

Thank you Tricia for starting this thread - you are one special woman in so many ways.  Rena - thank you for having 22 positive nodes.  That information alone, made me feel as if I had a chance :)  Honestly true.  Sharonma, thank you for your humor and your constancy (is that a word?) in all situations.  Pat, thank you for the joy you share through your own tears.  Dana, thank you for showing us the definition of determination.  Toni, Annette, Marie, Deb Joyce, NN and names I am forgetting (chemobrain :) ..... Thanks to ALL of you for giving me the comfort and companionship I needed to get through this, which continues to this day, even in my current state of NED and the ever-present "what if."

A special shout-out to the sisters we've lost along the way.  They remind us that we are amazing, courageous, and that we are WARRIORS!

Hug,
Elaine

Love seeing all of the girls back on Komen to support our new sisters.  Hope to see more!

Tricia and Rena - I know several have said it, but I must chime in ... thank you both SO MUCH for sticking with this.  You are strong, loving, inspirational and saving lives and I wish we lived close enough that I could hug you both!

As I've been trying to peruse through the message boards, I'm finding it difficult to find current threads.  I click on the date column to sort by date, but nothing happens, and the same few threads still appear at the top of Sound Off, no matter what I do.  Is there a secret to navigating through the boards to find who has posted recently who might be in need of advice or just an understanding ear?

Hi Ilene, It is so great to hear from you and many of the others whom I remember from my early days with Komen. I know there are many using on Facebook but I am not one of them so it is wonderful to know there are a slew of us who are still living with our friend, NED. As for your troubles with this website, I always click on the Forum Menu on the top left of the screen and choose "Posts since last visit". It works every time, but I realize screens and operating systems can play tricks, so this is probably no help at all. Take care.
