Hi Debbie,

So sorry so many days have gone by since you wrote. Thanks for being patient with this technology and my lack of checking this. You will find other women to talk with, and it will be a good experience. We look forward to seeing and meeting you at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, January 20, 2017. I am so happy for you that it is not in your lymph nodes. We will have a presentation by Andrea Brundage early in the meeting, and then the later part is the wonderful support time, and most of the time the ladies have a hard time leaving because they love to talk. Hope you see this message.

I look forward to attending Sept meeting. I am tackling my second bout with

breast cancer and have had many tests and two surgeries. Am going in for eval today to see what is next. It was simple until a positive lymph node was found.

I am having a difficult time dealing with the emotional side!
