Matastic Breast Cancer in Liver

Hi! My name is Lois and I was diagnosed in October 2015 with stage 4 matastic breadt cancer. They found this 1 month before I was cancer free 6 years. Was a sad day, but I am still surviving. My cancer is in my liver, sternum, one vertabrae and some lymph nodes deep in my chest. I have gone through many types of chemo, hormone therapy and some works on some of the sites but I started with 1 small mass on my liver and now there are 3. I have a great Doc and he is very optomistic we can stablize this cancer. So that is my hope and prayer. I am thankful for this group. I have been reading the posts and they are encouraging. My main way of coping is keeping busy when I feel good, but God is the one I lean on. My husband is the greatest also. My support group is always growing and staying positive! Thank you for listening!

  • Hello. Keep the faith. Having that gets you more than half way home. Welcome. This is a great group.

  • Dear Lois. So sorry for all that you are going through. If I could reach out aND give you a hug I would. Stay positive and keep faith that the good Lord has plans for all of us. I will be praying for you. Treat yourself kind and allow yourself to be angry if necessary. Just want to say I care. Xoxo

  • It's a pleasure to meet you Lois. Mine came back after 15 years. Hormone positive her negative it is in my bones and small nodules in lungs.

  • Amen!

  • Hi Lois!

    Glad u joined the group. Diagnosed with MBC with bones mets from the start July '16...My key from the start has always been to just keep going. Planning a vacation in July. Maybe China next year to see my nephew get married...that kind of thing...and of course pray hard. And enlist prayer warriors!

    -Blessings!

A-M-E-N. P.s. Happy Palm Sunday and Happy Easter (smile).

  • RLN-overcomer,

    You are a wonderful inspiration to us all! I agree. We'll do all we can to fight our battles but then must leave the rest in God's hands. Healing and restoration are words we want to hear! They are so comforting. Thank you for using them.

    Have a nice Palm Sunday and Joyous Easter too!

    This is a season for new birth and miracles. I wish everyone on this site hope, healing, faith, and best of all miracles!! Kats3

  • Your posts encourage me and bless me. Thank you!

  • Hi Lois! I also have mets in the liver, bones, and chest lymph nodes. The mets were first discovered in the bones 7 years ago and for a while, it stayed that way and was stable for 2.5 years. I've had liver mets for about 3 years and have been on a bunch of clinical trial and standard of care treatments...currently taxotere, carboplatin, and herceptin are starting to control the disease. It sounds like you trust your onc and that is great that he thinks you'll be able to stabilize the disease!

    Hang in there! This is a great group to vent and learn from others.

  • Fightingnana, keep fighting. I don't know which subtype of breast cancer you have but a lot of work is being done in breast cancer stem cell research and clinical trials for metastatic breast cancer are underway. If you're in the US you could contact Dr. Max Wicha, University of Michigan Cancer Center. His office would have more information. Dr. Wicha believes that in combination with our chemotherapy and targeted drugs, drugs that could target the left-over stem cells that are very resistant and can self-renew would assist us greatly. He recently won an award for his work in breast cancer stem cell research.

  • So sorry you are going thru this.

    Prayers for you.

    We are all here for you now.

  • Fightingnana,

    Stay positive about your BC. Pray every day, especially to St. Michael of the Saints who is the Patron Saint of Cancer Patients. I just found out about this Saint recently. Google his name and you'll find 2 prayers on the website that you can say daily. There have been cures associated with praying to him to intercede for you in helping you with your cancer. Of course only God heals and St. Michael is an intercessory.

    I pray these prayers every day. It can't hurt. And the important thing to remember is to have FAiTH that you will be healed. God Bless. Kats2
