|My mother was 34 when she as first dianosed with breast cancer. Only in one breast, but had spread to her lymph nodes. I was only 14 at the time, but was later told that it had been missed somehow. She went through chemo and radiation for what felt like forever. Through the pain, the sickness, she found the strenght to pull through. I've know many people with breast cancer.. the one trend i see is people giving up. We had friends that would give up.. stop living there life, until there life ended.
Unfortunatly the fight doesn't always end after the breast cancer. Keep up on your health, anything abnormal. Cause instead of it returning as breast cancer, my mothers spread every where but the breast. I'm not sure what was worse, the chemo, or the pain.
She was full of faith, love, and hope.. I believe that kept her alive longer then most. Please, find all of this in you. You can be stronger then the cancer. Don't let it consume you. Don't stop living.
