As many of you know this is a very personal issue for me. I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer on September 26, 2012 and had a double mastectomy on October 18, 2012.
It has not been an easy road by any means, have never given up, well not completely, I am a survivor and will continue to be that way.

I know that many others here have walked a similar path, judging by all the pm's I get with questions and support. There are so many here who have given me support, advice, kindness and their friendship and there are not enough words to say how much that means to me, I will forever be grateful for all of that and more.

Yesterday, I was told that I am in Remission, best news I have had in a very long time.

I've had a scare with this myself, as well as losing a grandmother and aunt to breast cancer. My thoughts are with you - hoping you have won your battle.

Exclamation

Everyday is breast cancer awareness.
Stop torturing breasts!
Binding, twisting, hand squeezing, clamps, weights, hanging by breasts, needles, forced milking (when not pregnant!), slapping, caning, flogging, biting and I have seen kicking! Also punching with fists and squeezing in devices.
Bloody Hell.

I am always happy to see more and more women having their mammograms. Ladies, do yourself a favor and have that mammogram this month. My hospital offers all kinds of discounts for ladies without insurance and schedule them on a Saturday to make it convenient.

And please do your part to support the Pink - I buy all the ladies in my office the pink tote bags and a pin to wear.

Stay strong My Friend = I so admire you and appreciate that you made my fight easier by your kind words.

Good luck on the run, hope you get to wear that pink bra.

I am always happy to see a PET scan all clear ~ great news. I am sorry that your journey was such a challenge more grateful that it is finally moving in the right direction. Every day and thought process is completely different than it was a year ago.

Even though the reason sucks always happy to have someone to stand beside me...surviving the fight. You are in my thoughts and prayers that it stays positive.

I am so sorry for your loss, huge HUG. My concern always goes to the family and friends who are dealing with this fight and choose to stay there with every step.

Proud to stand with you.

I've lost so many to cancer throughout the last little while, it's a fucking horrible disease.
In my family runs colon cancer....a reminder to everyone to get colonoscopies done...yes it's yucky, but DO IT!

As my avatar shows, I stand with you. My wife and mother of my children died of colon cancer 26 years ago, but I have friends and relatives facing breast cancer. As for myself, I am currently undergoing treatment for lung cancer (damn cigarettes). My last PET scan showed all side issues are clear and next week I'll begin concentrated radiation on the lung cancer and oral chemo. Though I don't post much I have followed your posts, Heartless, and I am very happy for your good news of remission.

I am so sorry for your loses.

Cancer runs in my family, throat, colon, lung, skin and now breast. Even with all of this I have family members who think that cancer is not something they need to worry about and getting checked is for other people.

Any opinions of Komen?

Ive run in the races before, but was taken aside one time and told the organization was huge and helpful but also corrupt, but I never did any research.

You have always been there with support, thank you.

My mom had lung cancer, I understand that fight. So very happy that your PET scan shows all sides clear. Will be praying that the radiation & oral chemo goes smoothly, will be keeping in touch.

Cancer takes too many people we love, time to kick its ass out of here.
