My thoughts and hopes are with you. Survival rates when it is caught early are good. My aunt is a survivor of breast cancer.

@Sapphire-Dreamer: Ok try and stay positive. Breast cancer, especially when caught early, is very very treatable. The key is catching it early, which it seems she has. There is so much out there these days that it is no longer a death sentence. So please stay positive! My godmother has lived 10 years and is in complete remission after being diagnosed with breast cancer. She lives a normal life and is doing wonderfully! Im so sorry that this happened OP! you and your family will be in my prayers.

My thoughts are with you. My mother is perfectly fine 3 years after her diagnosis. Hers was caught early too. The battle is rough, but if she’s granite like you say she will show it who’s boss.

@Sapphire-Dreamer: I agree with other posters…when caught early this can total be beat. I have a friend who has just made it through the course of treatments and is back at work after only 6 weeks!

Sending prayers and hugs. My mom is a survivor (5 years this February) after a masectomy, chemo, and radiation. Catching it early is key, so that’s great news.
Take your time and let yourself worry/stress out now, so you can be strong when she needs to lean on someone. Your mom is lucky to have a daughter who loves her so much.
We’re all here if you need to just vent or let out some stress! You can always PM me if you just want someone to understand how it feels.

@Sapphire-Dreamer: BIG HUG
IN July 2012 my own mother was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. We were a wreck too. She has about 3 more months of chemo left. She lost her breast and her hair, but she is alive!!
She lost 35 pounds and is constantly tired. Life does change A LOT but the disease is curable. She’s doing great. She looks 15 years younger in her wig. She is walking slow and has to buy a whole new wardrob but she is actually HAPPY she is at her pre-pregnancu weight from 28 years ago (she went from 185 to 153)
Be strong for her. At first, my mother was ready to just die because she would be with my father again. But then she said she wanted to meet her new grandchild (I’m 31 weeks preggo).

So glad to hear they caught it early. I know 3 women who were diagnosed in early stages.Their treatments were minimal and they came out of it happy, healthy and with an even greater outlook on life. I don’t mean to downplay her diagnosis because I know it is extremely terrifying regardless of the stage, but I know with lots of prayers and support your mom can fight through this! Stay strong!

@Sapphire-Dreamer: Aww sweetie, big big hugs to you! My mother is a breast cancer survivor, but when she got her call in 2005, I cried for days. It was early for her as well, and she got through everything just fine. I am hoping all of the best for your mom! <3

@Sapphire-Dreamer: I’m so sorry. I will be praying for you and your family. Your mom sounds a lot like mine the way she’s still at work. I think it’s going to hit her more after her next doctor appointment when they start telling her about treatment. Be prepared for the tears to fall at that time. The good news is they caught it early. Breast cancer treatment has come so far. I know how scary it is for you. Almost every women on both sides of my family have been diagnosed with cancer but every one of them has beat it! It’s so amazing what doctors can do now. Combine the new age treatments with the amount of prayers/good vibes were all sending your mothers way and you have an army on your side. That cancer wont know what hit it.

@Sapphire-Dreamer: So much love and hugs coming your way! My mom was diagnosed in May. I’ll just share a bit of ‘our’ story so that you know that this is beatable! (NOT wanting to thread jack or have me too syndrome!)
My mom had two surgeries, one in July and one in August. She started chemotherapy in October, and is scheduled for two types. She finished up the first type right before Christmas and has just began the second cycle, literally today. She’ll be finished by March.
Her hair fell out, and that was hard. She’s tired a lot, but its to be expected. Other than that, you cannot even tell my mom has (I actually like to say ‘had’, because I know that after this is all done she’ll be in the clear) cancer. She’s still my same old mom, and though she’s had to take some days off work here and there for sickness (chemo related) she’s been working throughout this entire thing.
The last seven or eight months have been hard, but they’ve also gone so quickly!
So while it seems like a scary nightmare right now, I can promise you that there is a light at the end of the tunnel, and it will get here quicker than you think right now.
Hang in there and PM me if you want to talk! Sending up many prayers for your mom.
