I so understand what you are saying Bena, I wish we could turn these terrible thoughts off that are so often in our heads now. I am sorry for your friend, life can be so unfair....it seems to me that very often it is side effects of chemo that actually takes lives.

(((hugs))) to you and your family and friends, I hope they make your friend as comfortable as possible

Metaplastic Cancer Bio

  • Metaplastic Breast Cancer: Bena Roberts
    Being diagnosed with Metaplastic Breast Cancer is devastating. I thought it was a death sentence. It wasn't. Having metaplastic breast cancer is tough. Chemo is horrible and my hair didn't come back after chemo - but that is the worst that happened. I have survived for 8 years after my diagnosis. If you move quickly and have the cancer removed you can live too. The usual chemo regime is FEC-D for this cancer. Some women have CMF or CMX but FEC-D is common. Some women have chemo first and others have surgery first. I had surgery first and found it suited me. But talk to your oncologists and think about what suits you. Please read back through my metaplastic breast cancer blog and ask questions. This is tough but you can do it!
