Eight years ago my sister was diagnosed with Stage 3 Breast Cancer. 15 of 15 nodes were cancerous. The doctors still scratch their heads over her case. She fought for 2 years and is in her 6th year of remission...

In the past year she has broken her knee and last month her hips. Her back started hurting and she has been on some heavy pain meds. She had an MRI done last week and the radiologist told her to get to her oncologist straight away.  

My sister Kim is one of those people who has given of herself her whole life. She is an RN and the best at it. She should have been a doctor.

This is the email received from her this morning:

Hi everyone,

I apologize for not getting back to everyone, but the last days have been busy with md appts, tests and picking up meds. I saw my oncologist today. She was quite optomistic about by prognosis.

I do have cancer in my lumbar spine and possibly elsewhere. The question is whether or not it is breast cancer cells or multiple myeloma cells? Her educated guess is breast ca cells.

I will be having a PET scan that will show the hot spots in my body. Then I will have a biopsy of the easiest spot to get to. After that is done then she will have enough info to create a treatment plan.

She said I will probably be back on my Arimidex or something like it. But that is all I know for sure now.
Love you all  

I’m scared as in doing my research the stats show this is not going to be a good outcome. I’m angry and terrified for her. This should not be happening to her. She fought so hard 8 years ago and finally found her place in this world and is finally happy and loved by a good man.

Please keep her in your thoughts for the Breast Ca outcome and NOT the multiple myeloma.  

I’m so far away from her and this is what kills me that I cannot be there with her. She always tells me that I’m her inspiration, when in reality she is mine!!heartheart
