    I am deeply sorry to hear that once again, another family member, your daughter has been diagnosed with cancer. I remember slightly that you lost both your parents to cancer and your sister was diagnosed? I also see you are a current member with the prostate forum. My heart goes out to you. How much can one person stand?

    As you know, our members are extremely knowledgeable and supportive. However, with that said, our Breast Cancer forum is not very busy. There are several other forums specific to Breast Cancer which may help in answering your questions and/or concerns. There may be some that can chime in here but I thought it respectful as a long-standing member, you receive a response to your newly created thread.

    Keep strong even when you feel you have nothing left.
