Re: [MOL] Roberta



Hi Roberta,  I am going through the same exact thing you are going through
now.  Stage II/III breast cancer.  Scheduled to get bilateral mastectomies
this Tuesday at Arthur James Cancer Center, Columbus.  I am of course scared
to death, but at the same time, I have learned lots of things since joining
this forum last January , and one of them is you don't give up or give in to
this disease.  You fight, and you learn.  Once my surgery is over, I plan to
really delve into the nutrition and healthier life style aspect.  The
positive mind set is a must!  You have many knowledgeable and great friends
here on the forum to help you through your journey.  Please reconsider your
position... I am sure that you have many things and people in your life that
would make you want to be a survivor!  God Bless, Love Gwen K.
