    not safe from the ravishes of breast cancer. I was diagnosed yesterday with brain mets. I will start brain radiation today for ten days then about two weeks afterwards I will start systemic chemo. My brain function has been temporarily affected and I can't type very well.

    Michelle,
    You are so special to us here and I am so upset for you right now.
    I know you are strong and have a positive attitude, and if anyone can stop this disease from going further it will be you and your doctors!
    Not only will I be praying for you, but will ask my family to do so as well. They know how I feel about the ladies on this website!
    Please let us know how you are doing - and I hope the radiation slays the dragon and that the chemo further kills the dragons that escaped.
    All of us will light candles for you here too.
    Much love and G-d Bless,
    Judy

    Sweet Michelle, we've all been so concerned about the storm and you that we never thought of something like this! (Although perhaps Jan did...She's been dreadfully concerned!)

    I do hope you know how many good thoughts and prayers we are sending your way! Know we will be beside you every step of the way. I am holding you in my heart!

    Blessings and many gentle hugs!

    Kiddo, apparently your post came up twice here. I fear that you may only see the replies to the one and not realize that others are sending support your way as well. So I am posting here to bring this one to the top also.

    Blessings.
