    OMG! This was exactly what happened to me… but unfortunately.. I just got married a year before.. and we were too sad and didn’t really have the money to even think about freezing embryos… I have a daughter already and he has two kids.. but when they asked us.. I was like OMG.. I can’t think.. and then it was too late.. I had to start chemo. I felt exactly how you did though.. I think about the beginning.. and how I just cried and cried and my 11 year old daughter had no idea why I was coming home from work and locking myself in my room! I love your story and I will share it hopefully on facebook.. because it is exactly how I felt! One thing that keeps me going is knowing God healed me and helped me through such a difficult time! Also.. last year I was pregnant for like 2 weeks… (we were having trouble conceiving.) and I started thinking.. man.. if I stayed pregnant.. my diagnosis probably would’ve been worse.. or maybe it would’ve healed it.. Not sure.. but I know things happen for a reason.. and I thank God for helping me find it and healing me and helping me get through it. I have about 1/2 inch of hair on my head now.. but it was 9 months of torture!!!! I only had 8 weeks of treatment though.. not sure why you had to do it for sooo long. I am now on meds for the next 5 to 10 years.. although mine wasn’t that much estrogen positive.. but now I’m menopausal because of the shots every month.. and I get hot flashes every day!!!! I hate “C” and I hate how it ruins your life and your choices, and dreams… but it made me stronger.. and I don’t stress out over too much anymore.. or worry over little things! God is in control.. He created us.. and I know He loves us.. and helps us to grow stronger.. and be much better after a hard trial! Anyways.. thanks again for your cartoon.. I LOVED IT!!!

    I love your cartoon blog and your positive outlook. I was diagnosed in Sept2014 with invasive ductile breast cancer. I was supposed to have surgery but then my lump grew so I was put on Taxol treatment for 12 weeks. A week after first treatment, my lump was still growing and it hurt terribly so I was put on the very aggressive A/C treatment, every 3 weeks and 6 treatments total. The treatments are already shrinking the lump down after just one week. I know it will be a long road and difficult journey. I appreciate that you have shared your experiences and I admire your courage and strength.
