Fellow cakers....I've always enjoyed CC and now am reaching out to you all for your prayers. Was diagnosed yesterday (99% sure) with breast cancer. I'm 48 years old in otherwise perfect health. I am getting this overwhelming feeling that it's not just breast cancer, but spread to lungs I have been experiencing difficulty breathing for a couple of weeks. Dismissed it all until now, but yesterday's news put things into perspective for me. I have an MRI and biopsy scheduled for Monday (26th) these next few days will feel like an eternity. I want to reach inside me and tear this thing out of me. DH is not taking this well at all. Big meltdown last night, so we have some very challenging times ahead of us. I am reaching out to everyone I know and ask that you please keep us in your prayers. Thank-you all and God bless!

Sending prayers your way. And NEVER say anything negative outloud. Give voice to only positive thoughts.

My prayers are with you.
Please make sure they do a very thorough MRI that includes your lungs.

I am so sorry for you and I hope you can fill these days of waiting with something positive. The mental worries are very hard, but don't let your thoughts fear the worst.
Two days ago, I had an ultra sound done on my left breast because I have experienced pain for a while. (I am still breast feeding my toddler so a mammogram would not show anything). Fortunately everything was ok. (and I am only 2icon_cool.gif but I have been close to tears in the days where I was waiting for my appointment.
If I was in your position I would read the stories of the many survivors of breast cancer (or any cancer) and get strength from them.
Wishing you all the best!

I will be praying for you and your family.

Remember, when men get scared a lot of the time it comes out sounding like anger, especially when they're scared about something that they can't do anything about except wait and pray, so try not to take anything your husband says in anger right now really seriously.

It does that when you type an 8 and ) next to each other, because that's the shortcut for one of the emoticons...the one with sunglasses icon_cool.gif I've seen it enough times that my brain automatically read your age as 28 icon_biggrin.gif LOL the sign of a cake central addict

Will be keeping you and your family in our prayers...

But know this Lil,

If you in your mind believe the fight is over before it's begun...then it is!

Stay positive no matter what news you receive, this is a mind over matter situation and a beatable disease.

Thank-you all so much for the positive thoughts and prayers. What a great site this is made up of such wonderful people. I am taking your advice and only speaking positive thoughts. The negative are a bit more difficult to shake from my mind, but I'm working on far so good. 2 days down and 3 more to go to Monday. It's God's way of teaching me patience I swear! Thank-you all for your thoughts and does mean the world to me right now and I do draw much strength from it all. God Bless!

Lil My thoughts and prayers are with you! What an amazing age we live in to have such diagnostic tools and knowledge and cutting edge treatment. Imagine living years ago and not having the advantages of today.
I have had three friends on the last two years with various types of cancer in various stages. They are all three in remission!
My closest friend had lymphoma and it had spread. But after treatment and changing her eating habits to a much healthier style she is 100% in remission. It's amazing!
Cry if you gotta- tears shed poison as does sweating so it's not all bad. But keep your chin up girlfriend for someone higher up has it all under control. And look into Limu Pro and other nutritional antioxidant rich foods and supplements. Fresh fruits and veggies. Stay away from soy as it messes with the hormones and can cause more issues with your treatment.
Knowledge is power and no better time then the present to learn a few things that will benefit you! ((((HUGS)))) thumbs_up.gif

lilscakes -

Just wanted to stop by to see how you're doing. It looks like you haven't been on here for a bit, so I just wanted to check on you! I hope you're doing well and continuing to be as positive as possible - but don't forget that you need to let out all of your emotions!!!! Scream, shout, cry, laugh - whatever you need to do. It will help heal you!

Just wanted you to know I'm still thinking about you - as are many others on CC!

Take care!
