    Good morning ladies!

    There are 2 breast cancer related ?s in the Cancer Community. I find that when I guide members to other communities to ask ?s, they don't show up! Thought some of you might pop over there to answer:

    Post Radiation Constipation

    and

    Breast Cancer

    Happy Monday!

    Thanks Haylen for the heads-up. Yep, just went over there to encourage them to our board.

    You are so good to recommend our board. Wonder if they have problems finding us?

    How about adding "Friend to Friend" to our title??? It does describe us so much better. We are the greatest "Warriors"! LOL.

    Where is our petition as I want to sign up for the name change.

    Have a good day. Sunshine here all week. But cool nights.

    Welcome to this crazy, wonderful community!

    I hope you feel at home and feel free to ask about our experiences, etc. No questions are silly...unless, of course, that is our aim when we ask them!! (It wouldn't be the first time, I promise!! )

    Blessings.

    Hello and Welcome to our community. We have a lot of wonderful ladies and occasionally a gent or two.

    Do not be afraid to ask any questions. The only dumb question is the one NOT asked. Let us know how we can help you thru your journey.

    I have been on this board since 2005. This is and has been my greatest support group. If you would like to find out a little more about each of us----just click on our profile picture and you can read our stories. Of course, not everyone has filled out their stories but we are all working on them to do so. Even if it is a blue bloob you can still click on it for the profile.

    You will notice some of us has pics of our dogs as our profile pic. We felt it livened up the board just a bit.

    Our "Pinkie" bus is a virtial mode of transportation. It will pick you up for any and all of your appts. Just close your eyes and we are there holding your hand and helping you wait. Of course, we can get a little silly with our bus and have many fun parties on it.

    You will notice some of us will have topics like gardening and quilting. Cancer does not rule out lives---we do. So feel free to join in any discussion.

    Hope you stay here. If you have any problems with learning how this board works just start a new discussion and post a question to our Moderator Haylen. She is the best.

    Welcome.
