Hello, I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer (IDC &TNBC) in 2013. This was about 8 months after my mother was diagnosed with Breast Cancer (IDC). I was prompted by her nurse to do a breast exam and I did. Two months later, I went to the ER around 2am with chest pain and was informed I had Stage 4 Non Small Cell Metastatic Lung Cancer.

I thought I was going to lose my mind to say the least. Although I've been through Hell, I'm still holding on by the grace of GOD! I know a lot of you can relate. I'm thinking about writing a book someday.

look forward to communicating with you all.

I know the "Big C" never seems to continue to show up in my lung. I encourage you to write that book.


Welcome! I look forward to reading your contributions.

I'm a survivor of both lung and breast cancer myself but my lung cancer was first.

May I ask where your triple negative breast cancer was treated? A member of my group is dealing with this. I'm urging her to get second opinion.


I was treated at Freodtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin. Please go to thier website at Freodtert.Com and view the list of doctors and services they offer for Breast Cancer patients. I hope this helps and I'm sending up a prayer for you and your friend.


Thank you for this. I will definitely share this with her.

If you don't mind sharing, where are you in your treatments at this point? Keep up the fight, as I said, you are not alone!
