I am metastatic stage IV and currently undergoing treatment. Unfortunately for some of us, we will have to battle the “pink beast” constantly.
Please do not feel like you are alone. Through LBBC you can find other women that share your personal experience. There is a bond between sister survivors and through LBBC you can find the support you need. You must remain strong and positive. Always keep in mind that you have survived. You may not be the same person after breast cancer than you were before breast cancer. I certainly am not; but in addition to the physical changes and side effects, I’ve also found a strength and appreciation for life that I didn’t have before. Live every day, love every day, accept yourself and be free.
Please reach out to LBBC and you truly will find the support you need. There are others out there who will communicate their personal experiences.
Be well and God bless.
