Mon, Jan 13 5:20am · DS-8201 for metastatic breast cancer? in Cancer

Thank you @burrkay and @colleenyoung for posting the question and sharing this new treatment information. Due to recent scans that indicate my cancer is unfortunately and likely progressing, I'm beginning to research new treatment options with my oncologist. My genetic testing indicated HR+ Low Grade Metastatic Ovarian Cancer which is rare and more difficult to find studies and treatments suited directly to this disease. However I've been on 2 breast cancer drugs which was successful until recently due to the HR+ component found often in breast cancer treatments. Any new treatment ideas in these areas are very much appreciated. I'll continue my research, but please do share! Again, I very much appreciate the information.

@brookealm2 Thinking and praying for you and your mom. Hoping the doctor's appointment brought some insite to either help find a good treatment option or relief by knowing how to resolve her symptoms. I really hate the unknown sometimes. It is scary – feels out of control. I hope you have some answers, a good plan, and plenty of prayers to face whatever it is during this Christmas season with your mom. ♥️

@IndianaScott @kathleenkin @hannahkeels @naturegirl5 @sundance6 @laihuaqing @gingerw @odette (Hope I didn't miss anyone) Absolutely! Thank you, everyone. Ginger said it well, you've all truly helped and encouraged me. Thank you! I know that I will think of all (Ginger, I'll be thinking of you and your quarterly testing!) and our stories hoping and praying in the days ahead. Sometimes I'm guilty of life getting busy and not even wanting to think of the word cancer. When that happens, I find myself not reading or posting. But I sure appreciate all your responses and see the power we have to uplift each other here. I will pay it forward one way or another. Blessings to all!

@sundance6 Oh that's a great idea. Please do. I have to admit, I'm new at this (new thread, etc.) so I'd be happy for you to take the lead. lol

@kathleenkin You're welcome @naturegirl5 ! Aw, our furry friends are the best! Like @kathleenkin and yourself said, those worries are normal, likely always be there in the back of our minds regardless of where and what our stories are. But we cope, hope, and keep living this life with our loved ones and furry friends! Yes, we are survivors! I'll make a note, send a few prayers, on my calendar for Feb. and your first month follow up!
