Hi to all from Houston Texas. Spending a few days with my daughter Karen and her family and the beginning of her second fight with cancer since 1997. would like to draw on the strength of this family in their prayer line and any medical expertise that is available. 9/97 after the birth of regan stage 2B (2/13) with lumpectomy, FAC, radiation. ER/PR neg. All ok with every 2 mo. follow up till 9/99 with mammogram showing new at same site as primary. Is considered to be 2nd primary (infiltrating intraductal blacks grade 3 high nuclear grade) MRI showing liver and bone mets and confirmed on biopsy of liver. A quick segmental done, Port reinserted 10/25 and start of Taxotere. HER2 positive and start of Herceptin 11/3. mets in liver is confined to left upper lobe 3 areas, pelvis 1.5cm. do not have the ER/PR from latest biopsy yet. Strong family history of CA on paternal side. Possible move to Sarasota and axcess to F.Lee Moffitt with a physician Charles Cox and Susan Minton. Going with the tried and true but more than open to any awareness of clinical trials, possible removal of liver wedge, stem cell transplant, bilateral mastectomy when treatment permits as high density of DISC. Most of all lots of prayers and hugs and hugs and prayers. There are 3 terrific kids here who want there Mom to dance at their wedding. love to all my Aunts, Uncles and cousins. The memories of those great family outings are still so fresh in my mind. Karens Email is
