(I'm gonna shout here so forgive me but I am so happy)

MY SISTER IS IN REMISSION :D

I haven't posted int he newsgroup about my sister because I am having so much
trouble dealing with this again but basically,
Lila was diagnosed with *** Cancer in 1996 when she was 32.  All the women
in my family die early from BC but Lila was the youngest so far to get it.  She
had radiation and chemo therapy and it seemed to work.  She was cancer free for
4 years and 6 months (the longest any family member had survived).  In Dec last
year the BC returned with a vengenceand Lila was diagnosed as Stage 4.  At one
point we were told she probably wouldn't see Christmas 2001.  Needless to say
the entire family were devastated.  Lila has had palliative radiation therapy
and chemotherapy.   The chemo made her loose all her hair this time and up
until 2 weeks ago it semed as though the chemo wasn't working but today at her
chemo session the Onc came in and gave her the good news.  The bone met on her
*** bone has shrunk dramatically over the last 2 weeks and the mets in her
neck have disappeared totally.  He is so pleased with her progress that he is
cutting her chemo schedule from 9 cycles to 6 so on the 7th June my sister will
have her last chemo.  
I have spent the last 3 hours whooping, screaming, dancing and crying round the
house.  With our family history of BC this is a miracle for us, the only thing
that could have been better would have been to hear a cure for BC had been
found.

So please forgive me for shouting again,

MY SISTER IS IN REMISSION    :D

I have a friend who has *** cancer all through her family and after
thinking it through she asked her Dr to remove both ***s---before any
cancer showed up. She had a fight with her insurance co. but in the end
she won.  Perhaps, as drastic as it sounds, that is worth considering.
My friend is nearing 70 now---the oldest any woman in her family has
attained.  She has daughters who opted to wait and each has had BC.
Red Queen
My best to your sister.

You post and shout all you want .. I've gone thru this with two sisters
- both opted for mastectomies and one had chemo for what seemed like
forever, losing her beautiful thick long hair and going thru hell for
months on end - the other sister had the mastectomy and a pill - it was
like she'd gone in for her tonsils - never bothered her - the younger
one really went thru hell.  When we hear good news about *** cancer,
it should be shouted from the roof tops.  Happy for you and your sister.
