Hi everybody. My name is Melissa and I'm 20 years old. I'm not diagnosed with breast cancer but I wanted to let you all know that you are so brave and strong, having to cope with this.
I am a big supporter of this cause. I even decided to get a tattoo of the word "Hope" with the breast cancer symbol on my shoulder, which I'm getting real soon. You guys are in my prayers and thoughts! Be brave as you have been from the very start! You are my heroes!!

Re:Introduce Yourself - Friday, October 16, 2009 11:25 PM
I am new to the site and do not know how to post a question.  I am having some uncommon (at least I think they are) symptoms and I wanted to ask if other have had the same symptoms.  I have had a clear mamogram, but I still feel as though something is not right.  Can you help me figure out how to post this?
 
Thanks.

Hi TBCR,

This link has info that may help you http://apps.komen.org/forums/tt.aspx?forumid=3

Go to the sound forum as it's busier than here, near the top on the left side you'll see an oblong shaped box with "Post a new thread" so click on this.  The enxt step is to have a subject line and type your message, when finished just click on the post button.  The link will explain better than I could I think and hope you get reassurance. If you still have problems reply to me here as you did before and I'll try to help more:)


Thank you MelissaAnn!!!!

Hi,
My name is Marlene. I found out Nov.14,2008.  I had IDC.  (0.6cm) ER,PR + HER -, had CT scan and MRI,  Has surgery, removel of cancer and one node,( neg ) clear margins!  had the oncytype test done with a score of 25 ( 16% ) decided to do chemo, had 4 rounds of t & c. next was  33 rads and now tamoxifen.  Was told by having chemo i reduced the chances to between 4 and 6%.  Soon will have my 1 year check-up and praying for NED.  Almost cried with joy when I had my 6 month check and was told NED!

Hello, I'm Kimo and this site has me completely frustrated. Tell me how to respond to posts, to cruise the forums. Today is just a weepy day for me, and I guess my chemo-brain can't get anything right. I'll be seeing the doctor tomorrow, and may find out that the third chemo is failing. I think a little conversation might be a good thing. I read bearz? and her story of surviving 11 years encouraged me greatly. I keep feeling everything , like Christmas may be the last. Sorry, I'm just in a bit of a hole today. I'm really okay with everything, there just seem to be days, you know? and struggling with this site made me nuts! Thanks for this idea!

Hi Kimo,
Glad you found us but sorry you're having a hard time finding your way around here.  You just click on a topic and then on the subject, the last page is where the last post is.  So if a topic like sunbearz 2 on living with advanced cancer you can go to the last page for the latest update.  I hope I haven't confused you more than you were before, I have that effect on people!!
Sound Off has a lot of action on there if your looking for people to talk to.  This site has a lot of wonderful women on here that can give you support.
From reading your post, it sounds like you have been through a few rounds of chemo already.  I hope you come back here and get to know us!!
