      Cancer cells in the body cause cancer to return. Not attitude or thoughts. Its sounds like you have had the best treatments so you have the best chance of cure. But know this as you complete your treatments. Every single day there are advances in cancer treatment and we are closer and closer to a cure for all cancers. Do something really wonderful for yourself when you complete your treatments and look up and feel thankful- let the sun shine on your face.

      I think you are right, that many people go through treatment and go on with their lives and don't participate in these kind of support groups. I am 1 year past treatment and moving on with my life but I also don't want to forget what I've been through, appreciate what I have, and hopefully give back a bit by supporting others who are just facing diagnoses or treatment options or questions. This is the only "support group" I participate in. All the best to you!

      I'm so glad you were able to get support here throughout your treatment. And even if you don't post often, you do still participate by reading -- personally that's why I post; to try to help others as often as I try to get answers to my own problems, concerns and occasional venting. May you have "no evidence of disease" now and always.

    I went to a "chemo class" Monday to learn about the possible side effects and how to handle them. Yesterday I got a letter from my ins. co. approving neulasta. This was never mentioned at the class. It sounds horrible. Is it given at the time of chemo or do you take it at home? Is this something we have to have? I am starting chemo for breast cancer this Friday. I had my surgery to remove a lump on Oct 22. Everyone seems to start chemo within a few weeks of surgery. I hope the dr. is having me start chemo in time.
