    So sorry to hear about your friend, Mairead. Good thoughts, prayers and pixie dust are winging their way to her and her family!

    My cousin DC's wife was diagnosed with it and had to have a double mastectomy, chemo and radiation. I was thinking it was about ten years ago, but suddenly realized it really was about 14 years ago. She is doing very well--healthier than before her diagnosis. She said the one thing she enjoys about the entire experience is that she now has soft, curly red hair. It used to be red, very coarse and wiry!

    for a similar or better experience for your friend!

    Sending lots of love to your friend & her family.

    I fully understand how she is feeling as I had it 4 years ago, aged 35 it was the last thing I ever expected. I was one of the lucky ones I only needed 5 weeks of radiotherapy. Although I have major problems from the treatment & I am all but disabled from it I still think myself lucky. I will be 5 years clear in April next year but does that mean we stop worrying about every lump we feel? I don't know but I would not think so. I chose to tell people as where I stay everyone knows everyone.s buisness but I can fully understand why they want to keep it hush hush. You have done nothing wrong so don't feel as if you have betrayed your friend, I would feel honoured that she has chose to tell you as she knows you will be there for them & help them when they need it, even if it's just to lend an ear as she will tell you how she is really feeling rather than worry her Dh & family it's amazing what we learn to hide from them just to keep them from the hurt

    Mairead , just got back from Pennsylvania, I know exactly how you feel, our son was diagnosed last year with cancer, he was only 28. Sometimes you just have to get your own head together before you can talk to any one.. I know they will appreciate your kind thoughts and actions, It is very hard to come to terms with in someone so young. My prayers are with you. Trish

    Mairead, there is not much I can say except my thoughts and wishes are with your friend and her family. They really are. Life is so precious isn't it? I know that sounds obvious, but its just that sometimes we forget

    Thanks so much to those who have shared their experiences in this thread too
