    I live in Brownsburg and am a 6 yr survivor. Had chemo but no radiation. I'm also involved with Pink Ribbon Connection, a local non-profit located in Fountain Square. We have a monthly newsletter and quarterly informational sessions on varying topics if you think you might be interested. Best of luck to you

    Hi, my name is Carol and am a 6 yr survivor. Since I'm also in Indianapolis, if you need someone to talk to, you can reach me or other peer counselors through Pink Ribbon Connection[phone number redacted]. We also have quarterly seminars which you might find helpful.

    That's awesome. And it happened to you because there's something you're supposed to do, whether it be to spend more time with your family, be there for someone else going thru the journey, or to let others know there are miracles. Don't feel guilty - just make the most of it.

    Hi Jenny. I will hit the 5 yr mark in March. I tell others that this is like an exclusive club that you don't really want to belong to, but since you're a member, you'll find all kinds of love and support to an extent you would never have dreamed. It's ok to have a meltdown - it relieves the built-up stress, then you can kick it into gear and move on. The not knowing what to expect is the worst and you've passed that hurdle. Sounds like you've got a great family, you like and trust your caregivers. It doesn't mean you won't have some bad days, but we had those without cancer! Have fun with the wigs and hats. I look forward to hearing more from you.

      Hi Jamrck -- Thank you so much for your post -- hearing such supportive words from a 5 year survivor gives great comfort and hope. I really appreciate your kind thoughtfulness. I am really looking forward to June when the chemo and radiation will be behind me. I really do have a great support group and through the power of prayer, the Good Lord is guiding me along this bumpy road.
