    My Friends

    I've only met two of you in person but I consider many of you to be my friends.

    I have a favor to ask of you. My wife has been diagnosed with breast cancer, We don't know the details yet, plans are being made, tests are being scheduled etc.

    We have been told it is treatable but they don't know if it has spread or not and we won't know this for two weeks after the battery of tests is done and they discuss the results with us.

    She is obviously stressed out to the max right now. Best case scenario, she has 4 1/2 months of chemo ahead of her and then surgery and another 2 months of hormonal treatments and possibly radiation. This is what we are hoping for and what the oncologist is planning for. I think once she starts the treatments, she will be fine but the uncertainty and the dozen tests she has to get done in the next week are overwhelming her.

    My favor is to keep her in your prayers. This is her second cancer attack since we've been married and prayer got her through the first one.

    You can count on me for prayers too, Steve. My own family has been hit by the same type of cancer and I know that with the treatment advancements in the 15 years that have passed, that will be a plus on your wife's side, too. - Bob

    Steve,
    So sorry to hear that mate.
    To help you and your wife absorb the current information and status provided from the medical staff, trust in the treatment regardless of what is offered. You and your wife will feel very low at the moment, and alone, but trust me, that will recede.
    The treatment decided by your experts in cancer in the State, will target the issue directly, and I am sure like many of my family and friends who got breast cancer NOT ONE died as a result of what was on offer, as treatment.

    They are the best the medical profession can offer as they deal with this everyday.
    Good luck with the treatment, give her plenty of hugs mate, she will need them. Stay Safe.

    I really appreciate it guys. She does too. She seems to be in good hands medically. I met her oncologist, and he seems to be a good guy. She met with her potential surgeon yesterday and liked her as well. We are only 5 minutes away from all the treatment facilities also which is a plus.

    Treatments for many cancers are improving and getting better all the time and so it is best to remain positive.

    Praying for you. Another plus is that treatments are becoming less and less invasive as well.

    All the best,
