    Need to connect with other multiple time survivors who've been through ttmt multiple times.

    Done it before; but this time is especially hard and I'm having a very diffidult time. I need to connect with others who've been through ttmt and been able to get to remission or NED.

      Greg, I am a 5 time survivor; working on 6. I am looking for others who have been through chemo and been put into remission. All the other times, the chemo was after it was removed surgically, so it wasn't in my body. For me there seems to be so much more uncertainty this way. The characteristics of it changed also, so what was HER+ positive; is not triple negative, and that is a big change. I guess I'm looking for reassurance that the chemo can put it into remission and life goes on. The first round of ttmts did show regression.

      Hi MalibuMom,
      Maybe you would benefit from the Breast Cancer Support Group we have here at St. Francis. That way, you can talk with other women who are in your shoes and you get the professional support from a licensed therapist. If you want any more information, please let me know.
      Be strong, you can do this! We believe in you!
