On 01.02.02, I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. Too late for surgery, I had chemotherapy, which failed. In May the chemotherapy was changed and I was soon in remission which was celebrated and welcome and lasted nine years - until October 2011. There was progression in 2011 so more treatment was indicated and I am now back in partial remission. But I'm not only a cancer patient - I also enjoy my family, walk my dogs and am learning to draw and paint. Life is good!

The CT scan showed no progression which was the right answer and very good news.  Now can I get back to living my life?  I don't do well with perpetual worry and the last week was fraught with concerns.

Unfortunately the world continued to fall apart today, did you notice that?  But I'm fine, I truly am.
