Secondary cancer is a hell of a thing.  I was diagnosed with secondary breast cancer 5 years ago and was given to believe that my prognosis wasn't necessarily good.  My surgeon told me that she knows someone who's had secondary breast cancer in her bones for 20 years, so I hold on to that hope.  5 years from chemotherapy, I'm beginning to think that I do have a chance of seeing my 6 year old grow up, of holding my grandchildren (from older children) and for maybe having a 25th wedding anniversary.  

I am pleased that BCNA came up with the Inside Story, because for a while there I was feeling that my experience was invisible.  I keep thinking that I'll contribute, but it hasn't happened yet.  

That's it for now, more later ....
