||Name is Jeannie Hoover. I am 64 yrs old and married to Norman Hoover. I have 3 children, 8 grandchildren and 5 great-grand children.
I am a stay at home wife. I have worked in a couple business and went in to private home care for the elderly. I eventually had to leave the job after getting breast cancer for the 2nd time and having reconstruction and multiple problems with it.
Recently I found out I have it again, even though I had a mastectomy the 2nd time. It has matastized to the lung and bones. I am on treatment, shots and pilll, and will soon find out if it is working or have to go intraveineous. I am tired but deal with it, kind of like being younger when the 3 children were home.
My greatest concern is all the women who are now having their breasts removed when they find out they have the breast cancer gene. The cancer comes back even with the breast removed!!
You do so much for everyone and I know you have a show with breast cancer patients. Please, please help us find a way to get doctors and insurance companies to do a PET scan after the treatments of Tamoxifen are over, or during it. Without them doing that PET scan, the cancer comes back and we don't know it until it is too late. Someone needs to get the word out to women everywhere and you have the knowledge and staff to do it, on you Breast Cancer Awareness Month shows. Please help others to help others so it can be stopped. Just ask for continued follow up PET scans every year. Mammograms don't work on a handmade breast. I am proof of that, having had 14 yrs of mammograms. My new cancer has been here for quite a while, it didn't just pop up there.
Would love someday to be on one of your giveaway shows but with out extra money now going to doctor bills and unexpected insurance bills, we won't be able to do that. I will be there at home, watching. You are an amazing woman, Ellen, your place is marked in Heaven!
Have a wonderful day and happy day!! I sure will!
