imageTexas Jeff - Verdict day with Dr. A is coming soon  All three of the appointments i need are now set, I just hope and pray I’m not getting ahead of myself $$$ here, but time is of the essence and I'm gonna jump in head first and hope for the best. The bone biopsy at the cut rate medi-clinic my oncologist referred me to is set for Tuesday 5/26. Forgot to ask where they go in to do one, but that feeling of something probing around under the skin unnerves me everytime. The ct …More…

imageSarah - 10 Minutes of Courage & Other TEDx Inspiration  I was very fortunate today to attend TEDx Sydney - a conference with a fantasic and varied mix of inspirational and thought provoking speakers. One of the most extraordinary for me was a lady kick-boxing champ called Nadine Champion. Nadine is a martial arts world medalist who was diagnosed with cancer last year. She got through her treatment with the help of these thought processes: - Pain + Fear = Strength - If you can just muster "10 seconds of courage" then nothing is too hard to …More…

imageMaggie - out of the box symptom  Going through chemo for stage 2 breast cancer.   Don't know if this has any correlation to it but one morning I looked at my feet and the lower part of my feet (half my mid foot and toes had turned brownish) so I went to my family doctor who said it was probably "aging" related (60) so I ignored it.    A month and half later, I am hooking up my bra (front-type) and I noticed a small lump …More…

imageCaroline - Purple IVy   Call me crazy but I named my Port....lol you need some sort of nutty distraction going through all of this journey.  I am so happy that I have it and should of gotten it earlier but you always think remission but now I will keep it in and wow it has made everything so much easier. My counts went down from 6000 to just under 700 so my husband and I were just sooooo happy. I will fight and try …More…

imageTaryn - The begin  So I decided to write a blog, yes I’m jumping on that band wagon where just a bouts everyone including their sisters best friends nannan is doing one, but I’m hoping for people to see this differently. So my full name is Taryn Lucinda Rebecca Shaw born the morning of the 22nd day of August 1990 (yes my parents clearly didn’t like me) maybe it’s cause I’m ginger?! Who knows so I was born and raised in a small town call …More…

imageSarah - 19 days since my last radiotherapy & feeling GOOD  What can I say, my BFAC friends? When I joined this site 10 weeks ago you all told me I'd get through it, and guess what? I bloody well have! Burns have healed, I'm eating a relatively normal diet, even BMs are pretty normal now. I went back to work this week (I worked until the end of week 5, then worked from home during weeks 6, 7 & 8). I realise that I'm not totally out of the woods and need to take …More…

imageMichele - I Think I Will Stay  I made a mistake. Everybody makes mistakes but this one was pretty enormous as far as mistakes go. Nobody is perfect, to err is human and all that rhetoric certainly applies to me along with all of mankind. This one is clearly disturbing to me because I am writing it down. I suppose I could go along with my life never revealing this to anyone but things that niggle at my brain beg to be inscribed on this, oh so …More…
