    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,

    We (my wife, Mirra) were just diagnosed with Invasive Ductal Carcenoma Monday. We will be seeing the Oncologist on Monday.

    We know that we are in for a bumpy ride. April 7 we will celebrate 27 years. We have been through a lot in this time but we have walked side by side, hand in hand and made it through. I know we will make it through this.

    We have gotten so much encouragement and information from the main BC on here.

    Willie, I am glad that you have come to this community as well as the other. This board is much slower and has much less traffic, but you sure will get lots of hugs and support from those who read your post!

    blessings.
    Rachael

    PS...Have you and Mirra noticed all the candles folks have lit for you? May their light make the journey less stressful for both of you!
    Just when the caterpillar thought her world was over, she became a butterfly! Don't give up five minutes before the miracle!!

    Yes, Rachael, we have noticed all the candles and they are comforting. It is amazing that something virtual can provide so much comfort.
