I came here in  2005 to read of other's and along the way have made many friends some closer then other's but I have always appreciated the Komen board and the togetherness that it created. It's nice having the reunion . I don't remember where those dancing bananas are?

Judy if you look to the left of the reply box you'll see an oblong box saying Smilies, just click on that and you have the option to post them.

Hello everyone!  I am late to the party and don't even know why I am here after several years away but am glad I looked.  I recognize so many names and am happy to hear all are doing well.

WOW, can't believe it's been over 8 years since I found this site...what a lifeline and lifesaver.  I have made wonderful friends both online and locally including a meeting here in Virginia with wonderful Rena H. and our Virginia Vixens (Jenny, Daphne & Theresa).

Thanks to all the ladies who have guided so many of us through the curse of BC.  Here's to many more years with NED!

Hi Tricia!!!  

What a great thread!  So glad to "see" everyone.  

My aunt was asking about a supportive board to refer a friend of her's to - the friend is about to begin chemo.  Of course Komen was/is my personal choice, so was getting the address to pass along and saw this post.

So good to see familiar names. I'm not always on these boards. I posted something recently in the stage IV section. In 2006 when I was first DX'd I just lived on these boards and am still so grateful for the support I received. You ladies 'got it' and I learned so much so quickly...it really helped a LOT! While stage 1 originally with a great prognosis, I swiftly advanced to stage IV with bone mets 2 yrs later and told I had a 20% chance of surviving 10 years...yikes! With another recurrence in even less time, things looked grim indeed. We changed my meds to Faslodex which I've been on since May 2010. Instead of having cancer 3 times in 4 years, now it's been nearly 4 yrs since any disease progression. Yippee! So my prognosis has been updated: my onco says I'm doing so well now she thinks I will help extend the average survival rate...and she has stage iv bone mets patients who survive 20 years...wow...a shot a 'normalcy.' I'm thankful I've been able to work full time and have a supportive employer. I just celebrated my 20th work anniversary today. People pray for me all over the world and God has been very good to me. I have no explanation for why me...doing well..and not others. I just know I was given bad news and now I have good news! Instead of this 5 yr pt from first being DX'd stage IV and this being the 'half time show' - it's not...i'm shooting for a couple more decades...I have a 4 yr old granddaughter now I have to have time to love! I also joined a BC survivor dragon boat team... I highly recommend the sport. Big international competition in Sarasota in October...I'm going! Anyway, hello to you all again! Suzanne

Hi Everyone-

Thanks Tricia for arranging this. I haven't been here in awhile but joined nearly 8 years ago when I was first diagnosed. This board was a LIFESAVER for me. Just being able to talk to other women who were in the same boat as me or who had already become survivors was so very helpful.

Through FB, I've kept in touch with many, but this was the original place to be!! 

Love to all!!

Happy Reunion ladies! It's been a long time since I've been on the boards. I just hit my 5 year survivorship on Dec. 1st, 2013. I have to admit, I disappeared for a while on purpose. It was hard for me to be on here mentally. I think part of the way I tried to heal my mind was to imagine that it was all a bad dream. I'm not like that anymore and talking about it and helping others doesn't stir up the emotions like it used to. Time does heal. I hope to be back on here more to help others the way that so many of you helped me. I don't know how I would have gotten through it all without the support of the ladies on here.
