    Decision Point: I was diagnosed with breast cancer after an annual mammogram. The breast surgeon gave me the option of lumpectomy or masectomy. Because my tumor was less than a cm and all markers prior to surgery indicated that it was treatable, I chose lumpectomy.
    There were no cancer cells in the margins or lymph nodes....the tumor was slightly less than a cm., I do NOT have cancer in my family. All mammograms, etc. since my surgery have been "good"....nothing has shown itself, no tenderness, no changes in bloodwork, etc.

    Side Effects (Confusion): The arimidex and aromasin caused me to have a great deal of confusion and memory loss. Now that I have refused to con't taking either or try a 3rd, my memory is improving.
    My husband says I am better and that he was really worried about me when I was on the meds.

      The same is happening to me, I am going on 3 months of aromasin and starting to get goofy in the head and I am trying to work. I feel like an idiot at work sometimes. After going off arimidex I got better in the head but now its happening again... I am considering going on another drug - Femara? But how many are there to try?

    I recently did the 3 mile Pink Posse walk for cancer in Brooks, GA. Alice Ramsey founded this group after she saw first hand the needs of people going through cancer treatment. The monies are used to help pay utility bills for people going through treatment and who are unable to work/pay their bills/etc.
    Alice is such an inspiration. She had breast cancer. Some of her friends would go to her chemo treatments with her wearing PINK (boas, glasses, etc.). The nurses dubbed them the Pink Posse, thus the organization was birthed.
    Go to www.pinkposseofGA.com to check it out. They support all cancer survivors, but focus on the pink as breast cancer was what birthed this organization. What a blessing Alice and her team are to so many people.
