      I done a little search and come up with these to start with. Some of them are a few years old and they may have moved on, but look at their home page and their dx journeys for specifics on what they had done. If you want emails on any of them let me know.

      @AmberDJ was diagnosed with both breast and endometrial
      @wendyp1000 also both
      @LindaC also both
      @Shorti also both
      @Martina77 also both + bone cancer
      @pminct both
      @barbwash both
      @Willow both
      @minuett both

      HearMeRoar, I am so sorry to hear that you are having to deal with cancer again. I can't provide you with any information on what you are facing, but I wanted you to know that I will be thinking of you. Take care.

      Sad to hear but I have had two women patients both with a first primary of breast cancer, and both with a second primary of stage IV ovarian cancer. One passed away from a car accident, the other is still going strong; her ovarian cancer was diagnosed over 10 years ago. It does happen. Best of luck to you.

      HMR, I believe carm's post was positive, telling you that those two people were doing just fine after their diagnosis. The one person died from a car accident, not cancer. It's all in how you look at it.

      HearMeRoar, before you close out, listen to me. I did mine backwords, but I had both. I had endometrial first, then breast cancer. I haven't had either since 2014. I don't know the stage or your situation, but I Do know this is very doable. You've already been trained as a warrior so there is nothing new to learn. Put your fighting gear back on and fight. You are so very strong, you've just forgotton that. I know this is a big one and you want to say, "Why bother?". But you are better than that. I have already started praying,,and He listens. By the way, with my endometrial cancer, I had a total hysterectomy and radiation. Tell us more about your diagnosis please

      Stage IV can be okay. I'm stage IV endometrial. I'm cancer free and have been for almost 7 years. My cancerversary is at the end of the month. I hope you reconsider leaving. I don't have breast cancer experience, but treatment for endometrial was not as bad as I feared it would be. And there are plenty of us who've been through it and can offer support.

      Hello HearMeRoar ~

      I like your chosen name here :-) It reflects strength that we all have, though sometimes need to look a bit deeper to find within ourselves. I survived breast cancer in 2013 and then ovarian cancer in 2016. Both tough experiences, especially when, in between, I had to deal with a staph infection that nearly did me in. But, I made it through, because I didn't give myself the option to NOT fight!

      I'm an author and wrote a very special book with the stories and advice/practical tips from 19 other cancer survivors to help those struggling with cancer cope with their health crises. 7 of those survivors had multiple cancers (5 of them, metastatic) and 3 had recurring cancers (pancreatic, colon and ovarian). All 19 survivors went through tough struggles and all 19 are still thriving!

      You went through breast cancer already, which is an accomplishment in itself. Your going through a second cancer with anxiety and fear is natural. However, allowing fear to take control of your life should NOT be an option.

      One of the featured survivors in my book is a stage IV pancreatic cancer survivor. She said this emphatically: "My cancer is my cancer and side effects are side effects. I have high-energy days and I have low-energy days. For the former, I enjoy what I can. I have Girls Night Out with girlfriends I've known since we were kids. We laugh often and we laugh hard. I'm just trying to stay alive. I have wasted so much time on the petty nonsense that consumes far too many of us; time we won't get back. Today that stops. No more. I am more awake and aware now more than ever, and I hope you wake up too and begin living life fully while you can."

      You are in my thoughts and prayers for your strength and healing! I believe that HearMeRoar is an appropriate name for you. You have the fight within you; you really do! So, bring it out ROAR again!

      with much peace, gratitude & love,
      Amor

      @HearMeRoar,
      I believe you misunderstood what I was trying to say... The stage is not important...in fact no one really puts weight into staging. The point I was trying to make is that it can happen when you have 2 different primary's but no matter what type, if you beat one you can beat the other. So I'm not trying to be a "Debbie Downer. " Many know me here and know how I am. I meant it as words of encouragement. I you took it any other way other than intended, then I apologize for the misinterpretation of my intent.

      HearMeRoar, I’m sorry you’re going through another cancer. I have no stories about what you requested. I just wanted to send you hugs and best wishes. I hope you’ve decided to stay on this site. Please keep us posted as to how you’re doing.
