so, so sorry to hear. My girlfriend had a double mastectomy - just to provide some piece of mind since she is HER2 positive. Maybe this will put Kendra's mind at ease that cancer won't be able to reoccur in that breast. Tell her our thoughts are with her.

no sadly it was a waste of my time, the dr danced around all my questions,
told me nothing, except based on my first mammogram I am engineered something or other which made her giggle, but told me she didn't even know what that meant...

But she did ask me what Dr of surgery I want....What the heck??

so all it did was stress me out
and now im still waiting
wed will be 2 weeks so the results should be back by than im praying

What crappy news to receive anytime, but even worse at Christmas . If you post your address, I'd be happy to send you some encouragement too.

For those of you who sent Kendra cards,
she starts her chemo in a few weeks now...
She is still as upbeat as ever.
I feel lucky to be her friend and that we are doing this together just months behind each other
