I do have to add that her words and perspective are very dark and not all exactly true. I have an estrogen driven cancer but mastectomy and hysterectomy were never a suggestion made to me. Likewise, many people live many, many years with metastases. Still, it’s very important to understand metastatic breast cancer and that no one is really a “survivor” after a breast cancer diagnosis – we will all spend the rest of our lives wondering.
