||I am a RN whi retired from the VAMC with 24 years of service. 1yr after retiring I was dx'x with breast cancer. I had surgery and now on the road to recovery. I had radiation and I'm on chemo. I am unable to take the other medication herceptin. I have been through a lot with this and have a new found awareness of a debilitating disease. I was also dx'd with Parkinson's in 1998. I keep moving by attending water arobics 3 days a week. Still have doctor appts that keep me busy at this time. I try very hard to be home to see the Ellen show daily. Ellen and her guest give the needed infusion I need to keep going.
