Re: [MOL] hodgkin's disease then breast cancer

Karen:  I had uterine cancer (surgericly  removed) 1975, then breast cancer in 1995, mastectomy.  I was placed on Tamoxifen and had a severe allergic reaction to it, went into addidson crisis.  This is a truly wonderful forum, everyone is like family.  So when you see a conversation you feel you would like to join; just jump right in.  Good luck now and I am praying you will meet someone on line that has had both cancers.  Your friend, lillian  -
