Thanks Kumari Aunty - I can't wait to come to the US next year and have a good time with all of you in the US.

The lady in the picture is Samantha - she helped me manage the show and was great. She is half Indian born in South Africa - we met here in Seeheim! Hugs Bena

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!
