Diagnosis 101, the new normal

Hello friends,

this week I want to talk to you about how you will live the new normal your life has become after being diagnosed with mets bc. The rounds of tests, doctors appointments and new medications that you will be taking daily. Plus, the multiple offers to help. It can be such a confusing time. People want to help you and your not even sure yet what you need. I suggest that you keep names and numbers for these kind souls and stretch beyond your comfort level by allowing them to really help out when you need it. There are many other topics covered today. Medicines, when to take them, and staying on a schedule. It will all make sense to you as you learn more about your treatment plan and accompanying meds. If you have any questions for me please leave them in the comments.

Thanks for stopping by.


Breast cancer is breast cancer right?

Hello people,

Q: When is breast cancer not breast cancer?

A: When it spreads to other areas of the body.

That's right, Metastatic breast cancer is not currently included in the statistics used by groups like Susan G. Komen to show the cure rate of cancer. It is the cancer industries dirty little secret that the 40,000 men and women who are die from mets breast cancer each year, aren't included in the stats. Why would that be you might ask. Well, it would make their cure rates lower and it wouldn't make people walk/run and donate to the many pink ribbon groups with their hands out for donations.

Below is an informative post I wrote 3 yrs ago as all this information was becoming new to me. I thought that I'd share it with you here on this blog. It was previously posted on my old blog the beautiful life.
