    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    Michelle just sent me an email and said I could share it with you on the boards. (hope I can do it).

    ((((("I was diagnosed with brain mets and I started whole brain radiation yesterday. In mid-December I will see my local oncologist who together with my Dana Farber oncologist will decide my next systemic chemo.

    I haven't been able to blog because my brain is not connecting with my fingers - a most frustrating problem as you can imagine. The problem should clear up after I finish the ten brain rads treatments.

    I am a bit scared - this is a sudden turn for the worse and you can imagine my family's worry.

    Thank you for checking on me. Feel free to post this. I should be able to post soon."))))

    Please, let us send her all the support and caring we can. She can read better than type so if any of you want her email addy just let me know. Thanks

    strong person.

    Cindy, Let's start a card campaign for her. If you send me your email addy I will send you---her snail mail addy.

    She is having difficulty typing now but can read. You think that is a good idea???

    Hi Jan,

    Would you send me the email and mailing address for Michelle also. I've been absent for awhile, problems with chemo and one hospitalization and a change to weekly trips to Duke. I guess I'm saying I've been overwhelmed.
    I am so sorry that I haven't been keeping up with everyone but plan to do better.

    GGrandmaJan replied to vajanie's response:
    Thanks Janie,
    Here is my email addy:

    Just send me a note and I will then have yours. Will be happy to send her email to you. Many thanks.

    How have you been doing? I am so sorry to hear of your problems with the chemo. Anything we could give you pointers on?? Hope all is geting better for you.

    Blessings and Hugs
