    Hi Tracyt,

    I wanted to check in to see how you are doing. I pray that things are well.
    I just received news that I have metastatic disease. I'm still trying to wrap my mind around this; however was hoping you would be willing to share the name of your treatment center. I'm seeking a team that is cutting edge that will never give up on me and it sounds as though that is the type of team you have. If you can please share the name of your providers I would greatly appreciate it as I am considering traveling there for care.

    Warm Regards,
    Fight4Life

      Hi Fight4Life, Im sorry to hear that you have MBC. Just like you, I couldn't wrap my mind around it either. I pray that God will direct your path to help you make the right decision. I have more than one oncologist. My main oncologist was under Oncology specialist of Charlotte. They recently made a lot of changes and some of them are now a part of Presbyterian hospital aka Novant Health system. In my opinion, as a person that's been dealing with this for a long time, Novant has the best care. They have a second opinion clinic that allows you to get another point of view. The oncologist there can also refer you to a clinical trial doctor if that's what you want. Let me know if I can help you any further.

    Hi Tracyt,
    I just wanted to check in to see how you are doing. Also, you mentioned that you lost your best friend, her mom & aunt while battling at the same time. I'm so sorry for your losses and I can't imagine how difficult a time that must have been. I'm curious as to what you would attribute your survival? Did you all have the same course of treatment? Why is it that some of us live & others die while fighting the same/similar battles?

      Happy Anniversary and Happy Birthday! You are such an inspiration to us all. I am claiming the victory! I try to maintain a positive attitude & have managed neoadjuvant chemo, a double mastectomy, and currently adjuvant chemo really well. I've been able to work full time throughout this entire journey & most people aren't even aware that I'm battling cancer. I am in Rochester, NY and have a local team, a team at MSK in Manhattan, and recently connected with a doctor in Oregon as well. I have conducted extensive research and literally am in this fight for my life for life. The next time I'm in CLT I hope to connect with you. In the meantime thank you for your continued inspiration, you are my shero!
