I was diagnosed with breast cancer in January 2009. I had two surgeries to remove the lump and the surrounding lymph nodes when it spread. Followed the surgeries with chemo and radiotherapy. I'm now on Tamoxifen to help prevent it coming back.

 

That's it in a nutshell :). If anyone has any questions, I'm happy to answer them.

 

Cheers, Kat

I have lots of questions because my sister-in-law had breast cancer and my cousin who was 43 recently died from it, but they are both Christian and I need to talk to someone with a different perspective. Specifically my  sister-in-law's experience put a lot of turmoil into our lives. I'll send you a friend request that I hope you will accept. Thank you for being willing to share you knowledge and experience.

Fire away Flower, I'm happy to help if I can.

 

Cheers, Kat

I hope you don't mind that most of my questions I would like to ask you in a private message which would mean you would need to decide to accept my friend request first. Oh, and I am sorry, I forgot to say Welcome to TA!

Not at all Flower, I understand. I accepted your friend request last night, so you should be able to message me now.

Hi Kat ... are you still a member? I notice that this forum post is about a year old. I have a question for you in regard to having cancer and being an atheis.
