Breast cancer effects more than just the patient.

“I have been fighting breast cancer since 2009 with a relapse at the end of 2011. I have undergone many surgeries, radiation, and chemotherapy. My cancer started out as a DCIS, then stage 2/3, and now Stage 4 Metastatic.  There is no cure for this, just control.  So once again, thank you to all for the support and assistance you have given me, it really makes a difference for someone like me.”           Susan
