I was diagnosed in April of 2011 with metastatic Breast Cancer. I am being treated at Sloan Kettering in NYC. My metastasis had spread to lymph nodes, spine, and bone. I was treated with hormonal anti estrogen meds and participated in three clinical trials. No drama until spring of 2016 when I began to have severe side effects from my current meds. My oncologist addressed this and things stabilized until this past spring. I had a severe attack of spinal stenosis in the vertebrae where my tumor is. I had emergency spinal surgery as I couldn’t walk without extreme pain. I’m recovering now and had to quit my full time job. I can no longer take the stress of commuting and working full time. I’d love to connect with others who are stage IV metastatic Breast Cancer warriors like myself.
