Silver Lining!!

So since it has been about 2 months since I had the BRAC test (the genetic test) done and I still hadnt heard anything, I decided to just call the place and ask if it was back yet. Turns out it had been back since the end of january. Nice. But it turns out that it is NOT genetic. Hip Hip Hooray!! I was so worried because that meant that my girls would have a huge chance of getting Breast Cancer when they got older. Now I know that it was just a crazy thing for me to get it and hopefully no one else in my family will have to deal with this junk.
Sorry about the lack of posting, but its just been hard to get with the program this last week. Now my sister is in town and we are going to hang out for the couple days that she is here-so maybe this weekend I will get those pictures up and running. Have a great day!!

Shelly -
I found your blog while looking at another one. I too have breast cancer and am blogging about it. I was diagnosed last August. I just finished chemo. I had a double mastectomy last October. I'm getting ready to have reconstructive surgery. I wish I would have started my blog when I first found out, but I didn't. I still have to go back and blog about it from the beginning, but if you'd like to read the post from My Cancer Journey, here is the address:

I wish you all the luck in the world.

Take Care,
Kara Herron

I don't know you but I did go to High school with your husband. My wife has a blog and had seen your link through other friends that know you. I am very sorry to hear about your cancer. One of my uncles has prostate cancer. Here is something that my father had found for him that is all natural and according to many it stops cancer. You can research more for yourself and decide. This is part of an Email that I had received on the product called VITAE-ELIXXIR.

--Google this name "vitae-elixxir". Go to the first one and read up on this. I talked to Ralph on Friday and told about your problem. He told me what you need to take and said in 5 to 6 months it would be gone, no more trace. It does not interfere with any meds or procedures you are currently on. His name is Ralph and his number is 307-266-5310. He lives in Casper Wy. If he does not answer leave your name and number and he will call you back. The phone rang forever before the answering machine picked up. He also has a product that you can take if you don't have cancer that will keep you from ever getting cancer. He is 87 and quite a talker. Talk loud to him. Dan is the one who put on to this guy and he has ordered the cancer preventive product from him already. He will tell you what you need and if you decide to order it, he will bill you. I have not read all the stuff on him, but he claims it does work.--

Best of luck to you and your family.
