    Celebration (Anniversary): My Mother is a Breast Cancer Survivor she recently celebrated 4 years cancer free. I pray for her every day of my life as she is also my Best Friend. We have lost several family members and friends to Cancer. My dearest Cousin whom I grew up with lost her Mother (Mom's Sister) to Breast Cancer and now she is fighting...it really isnt fair..but then life isn't fair. Now my oldest Daughter has told me she has a lump on the underside of her breast near the bone and that her arm pit has been aching and is painful to touch. I asked if she had seen the Doctor, she has he is setting up a Mamo and we'll go from there. sigh.....

    Oh No (Diagnosed): Father in Law was diagnosed with Bladder Cancer, his blood pressure is currently to high to do surgery but as soon as its down surgery is a good ahead. He has an aggressive bladder cancer but it has not spread from the bladder. The bladder and prostate will be removed approx Dec 20 provided they get the blood pressure under control.

    Oh No (Cancer is back/Recurred ): She has been cancer free for 7 years..her breast suddenly turn flaming red and got kind of like the skin of an orange but stayed red and itched miserably. The first doctor she had sent a biopsy/pathology to 4 different Doctors, none of them could identify what it was. She in the meantime caught a bad case of bronchitis and sinus infection that was just tearing her up because the coughing was so violent. She went to her family physician to be treated and she told him of her situation and he gave her meds and sent her straight on to another Doctor whom was terribly alarmed did biopsy's of 4 areas and sent them off. We are still waiting for a final answer but the doctor is certain that it is inflammatory breast cancer this time. The first was a 2cm malignant tumor..she underwent radiation and chemotherapy. She survived! How in the world do we deal with this. She got in such bad shape she ended up on SSD and is just barely getting by. She is so torn up over all the medical bills she can hardly have an entire conversation. My heart aches for her. I want to help but dont know how...I am in KY she is in NC. Please someone give me some positive energy, words of wisdom, anything I can do to help her through this. I will be going down when she truly needs me just as I did before, she will tell me when.
