    I am so sorry about your sister as is everyone that has posted. I wish that there was something more that we could do than just praying but we all know prayers really do help. I have a friend that was dxed with breast cancer last year and she just completed her chemo/radiation. I know it is a very unpleasant thing but you will get through it. I pray for you to have the strength to support her and yourself through this. Sometimes I think it is harder to be a nurse when our family is sick because we know too much and we worry more. Please keep us posted on how you both are doing.

    she went to her surgeon/oncologist today and it's pretty advanced but will not know how advanced until after surgery. her axillary lymph nodes are enlarged and the surgeon told her it seems that it has spread. her sx is tentatively scheduled for 6/30 followed by aggressive chemo....thank you all for your prayers. and i'll probably thank you all a million more times.

    Let us know how her treatment goes. We could always send supportive cards to her if you think that would help her.
