    Learning About Breast Cancer
    First of all I would like to say I am really sorry you have to go through something like this. But when you get hit by something of this magnitude it is best to look for the positive aspects of life. For one, it helps me to know that I somehow bring a light of hope to many, even if it's just a dim one. I am 24 yo and was dx Sept. 2011. I decided to have a double mastectomy, just finished 6 rounds of tax/carbo, and will begin radiation next week. I had some time to grieve my breasts, that would suddenly be removed from me when I was just beginning to admire them. I had time to sit down and throw away my plans, or at least put some on pause for a while. Even with my grieving I still have episodes where I just break down and have a total pity party. It is all normal!!! I truly believe that things happen to us for a reason. We all are instruments of the Lord and I trust that he will show me where my next path will lead me. I have experienced more blessings in my life now than ever. Or it might just have been that I never stopped to realize how blessed I always was. Find the strength you need in your children, they will need a happy, healthy mom. Remember that you are never alone in this battle. You will come out the other side victorious and more beautiful than ever. We are all together in this and together we will triumph. Wish you the best.

    My advice, don't be afraid to ask for help or accept help. You can't do all of this alone. Don't try to be the super star and do everything you did before. I'm sorry you have to do this. You should do a journal!

      I didnt :-( Believe me, I was scared out of my mind. I went from being a healthy 23 yo to having cancer. This journey will be so unique to you. I have a co-worker that had BC 8 years ago and I true to get as much info from her as I could. But at the end my treatment, side effects, and outcomes were do different from hers. I understood this was something I had to live day by day. I stopped planning and losing sleep over things that would happen tomorrow.

    I went through surgery, chemo and radiation 2 yrs ago with my 4 girls aged 2,3, 7&9. My husband was fantastic but he still had to work throughout. Some days I just lay on the coach while the younger 2 played With their toys or watched tv. It has helped them to grow so much stronger and more independent. Even at 3 my daughter learnt to make a Vegemite sandwich to help. They are an amazing distraction, but remember that it's ok if they watch a bit more television than usual or you have a few more take away meals. It won't be forever and they will survive :)
