Last time someone I know was diagnosed with breast cancer, I got the phone call for help and information. A few weeks ago....I got the text. A good friend's mom was diagnosed with Stage 3 triple negative breast cancer. This was hard for me to take since one of my good friends of over 15 years just finished treatment the week before. My heart sank again.
Every time someone I know gets diagnosed I get angry. Why can't there be a cure for this beast? It deeply saddens me to know that someone else has to live with the reality of breast cancer and the fear that is associated with it. Since my own diagnosis I have had many friends and acquaintances get diagnosed. Breast Cancer is EVERYWHERE! I just never knew how prevalent it was. Now it touches my life in so many ways and far to often.
I continue to pray every day for a cure or even a vaccine to prevent the disease from ever happening again. For now I also continue to offer support and an ear to those going through diagnosis and treatment. Since starting this blog I have talked to many women - especially those using cold caps through chemo. It makes me feel good to give back and to offer hope to someone that is holding on by a thread. I hope one day I won't have to help anyone with breast cancer because it no longer exists.
I am a wife, a mom, a sister, a daughter, a neice, an aunt and a friend. I never thought I would hear the words "It's not good. There are cancer cells". December 8, 2010 changed my life forever. This is my scary, long, enlightening journey through breast cancer. I hope that my words help others facing a similar situation or those that love someone going through breast cancer. I don't know where the road in front of me leads, but I know that Breast Cancer won't define me.

I've been following your blog, especially about the cold caps as I just started chemo last Friday and am using the chemo cold caps not penguin. We'll see how it goes.
I wanted to ask you about the rash you had while on taxotere. I read your post on the breast cancer forums and I too have been itching and a terrible rash on my chest that just grows each day and it's only been a week. Did you continue with taxotere or did they switch you to taxol? I'm worried about continuing if it's this bad already.
Love your blog. God bless
I did not develop the rash until after my 3rd chemo I believe. They kept me on taxotere and said it was not from the chemo. Knowing what I know now after the fact...I believe the chemo caused me to become more sensitive to things and develop allergies because it messes with your immune system. All of a sudden I found I was allergic to my laundry soap and I had been using it for a long time. Once I finally figured it out and changed laundry soaps, the rash went away. You may be having an issue with the taxotere or becoming allergic to something else. I did also see a dermatologist because I was miserable. They tried to solve the problem but could not figure it out. They did prescribe some steroids and topical steroids to help. Did you try benedryl? I also used Sarna - found in the first aid section of the drug store. It had a cooling effect. After a while my skin felt like it was flaming and on fire. This provided a little relief for a while.ReplyDelete
Hi. My name is Alex 34 years old. I am about to start the same chemo regimen you did and going to use cold caps. Please email me firstname.lastname@example.org so we can chat. I hope to hear from you very soon!!!!!ReplyDelete

Health wise, I feel like a child dancing in the rain ever since I got cured of hepatitis. I was diagnosed of HEPATITIS B and I was told it has no cure at the hospital, but I was given several antiviral medications to slow the virus’s ability to damage liver. But after sometime the medicine wasn't working and I became very sick with different symptoms like: vomiting, fatigue, dark urine, swollen stomach and so on. I went back to the hospital and I was told it has become chronic with liver problem, and out of frustration I went online to search for something new to try, and I came across Dr. IYABIYE's recommendation, I gave it a try hence it's a herbal medicine. And behold, I was cured after the treatment. I have to wait for months then went back to the hospital and still I was tested negative. You too will be cured.

This is so amazing and so much reminds me of my Dad’s battle with Parkinson's disease and stroke. I think the biggest trauma was much on the family. You know, watching your agile father became so fragile and a shadow of himself. He became dependent on grand kids to move him around and feed too. It was really heartbreaking for everyone! But each time I remember the story, I become so thankful that we were opportune to learn about Dr. OVIE through the internet and used his herbal medicine which helped my Dad. Though I read a lot of negative things about herbs for Parkinson's disease and attendant effects of stroke treatment, I can tell you that the right herbal medicine is still out there! We found ours through Ovie. My Dad was 75 when he had an attack with Parkinson's disease which led to stroke. We used all recommended over-the-counter medicines for him for a period of 3 years, yet, there was no cure and to think those drugs had very bad side effects on him became our new challenge. When we switched to homeopathic treatment, he got a little better. Our breakthrough was through Dr. OVIE Herbal Medicine. That medicine was a miracle our family will never forget. In 2 months of use, his body was totally revived! His stroke vanished while Parkinson's disease was completely cured. Dad turned 87 august 01 th and is still very strong. Occasionally tending his garden with grandchildren. I will say, give Ovie a try, you never know your breakthrough from Parkinson's disease and stroke is very close to you an email away. ontact Dr Ovie via email> firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Dr Ovie on yahoo email> email@example.com contact Dr.Ovie on his website now https://oviemiraclemedicin.wixsite.com/mysite Call or WhatsApp Dr on +2349056393169 aaDr Ovie is also specialize in curing the following below,*PARKINSON DISEASEReplyDelete
