    All I can say is I am sorry AND my sister was diagnosed with breast cancer in the 90's and is as healthy as ever today.

    This^^^

    I cannot say it better...but...YES!!!!!!

    She MUST do her homework. Its HER body. HER decision. Talk talk talk. A lot. Question a lot. Be informed before making any decision.

    Breast cancer can be cured, my ex neighbor had cancer and she is going on about 8 years of remission. Breast cancer research has made the difference.
    Tell your sister to always stay positive, a positive attitude means a great deal when you are battling cancer.
    Best wishes, prayers and hope for your sister, she is going to do well and beat this cancer.

    Your sister should contact Dan McDonald. He has helped a few people cure cancer with a raw food diet. Look up Raw food Trucker driver on youtube.
    I have been watching this guy on youtube on and off since 2008.

    My MIL had breast cancer when she was 73. After she beat cancer, she flipped backwards off of a lawnmower and broke her back, broke her hip, and broke her femur. She is 86 and still mean as ever. Hope your sister does well.

    Do you have a cell type diagnosis?

    ie. adenocarcinoma. ductal cell carcinoma.

    I’m really sorry to hear this. As a cancer patient myself for about 20 years now, I can say just from your story that you’ve done a lot just by caring so much.

    As I said, I’ve been fighting cancer for 20 years, but my brother has barely even noticed.

    My sister has breast cancer again.

    Found out Tuesday.

    I feel like nature is trying to kill my sister.

    Plus now my mother has Parkinson's and she and my dad argue constantly and can barely get along, we need sometimes 24 hour homecare for her and sometimes even that is not enough as my mom is kinda losing her **** and dad is getting very forgetful and frustrated. He is 83.

    :(

    My thoughts are with you, Ron. A very difficult year for your family.

    May G-d stand by your sister, and ease the days for your folks.

    Good luck. I hope the best for your family. It's very difficult, but one of the best way to help our beloved in this troubles is to smile.

    Assisting our parents in their last years is a tough thing. They took care of us in our first years toward Adulthood, and it's hard to take care of them in their final years.

    I hope that things would get better than you.

    I know what you are feeling right now because my wife's cancer has returned and she is scheduled for a second bone marrow transplant in order to "buy time". When the doctors use terms like those you know that there is little in the way of a positive long term outcome.

    Things like this trigger the need to fix the system that essentially GOUGES whatever savings retirees might have with grossly overpriced drugs, treatments and care where PROFIT is more important then PEOPLE.

    I figured out that while I have this need I lack the ability to effect those changes as an individual. My efforts need to be redirected instead towards being a better caregiver because that is what she needs and her needs come first.

    I am planning a series of outings, mostly short car trips to see places we have been in our lives together. We can park and have coffee and spend time together.

    Not being able to change the outcome means making the best of what we have now. Today we are going to a local pottery studio. My wife had a knack for it and made some really good pieces so this could bring back some fond memories for her.

    Above all else I am going to share the advice that I received about the need to be kind to yourself. The reason being that you are stressed out when you need to be calm instead. Being kind to yourself helps you deal with your stress and be a better caregiver. It will help you to get through what is an exceptionally difficult period in your life.

    Stay strong and if you want you can PM me.

    Take care
    DT

    ..excuse me but can I say you just go on feeling what you gotta feel and being able to put it out like you did. It sucks and hurts but it is part of something you will eventually figure out. Hang in. The fact you can even talk about it as a strength. Most of us swallow such words.
