Extractions: It is important to remember that there is no one right treatment for recurrent and advanced breast cancer, since every case is different. Even when another patients diagnosis sounds almost identical to yours, her or his approach to treatment may not resemble what your medical team recommends, or the course you select. Choosing the treatment strategy that makes the most sense to you and your own medical team should always reflect your personal situation, beliefs and needs. To make this important decision, you, your supporters and caregivers will need medical and educational facts, information and resources. Aside from your team and the resources and services available from national cancer and breast cancer organizations, this NABCO website suggests many additional online sources for detailed information. As you explore the web for details on advanced breast cancer treatments, drugs and medications, keep these information categories in mind:

Extractions: Managing Your Activities As people arrive, those already in place around the table share some good-natured banter, swapping restaurant reviews and parenting tips. There's a friendly, relaxed camaraderie in this room, which is simply a partitioned-off meeting room in a hospital. There's no obvious similarity among the people in the group; they might be homeowners waiting to meet with city councilmen, or members of a book club or volunteer committee. But in fact their common bond is arthritis. Even their diagnoses vary tremendously - rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, Fibromyalgia, Sjögren's syndrome, osteoarthritis, dermatomyositis the list continues. What is the same is that they are largely alone battling similar problems in a world of employers who don't understand, friends who urge them to stay positive, and family members who have heard about it too much and too often. As the last few people arrive, Frances Rolander, who started the monthly support group nine years ago, asks people to introduce themselves. Donna and Joe Huser, a couple who are longtime veterans of the group, start. Donna has dermatomyositis, rheumatoid arthritis and a host of other problems stemming from those conditions. Joe began coming to the group meetings with Donna when she was too weak to come on her own, but he quickly found that the meetings helped him immeasurably in understanding what his wife was going through. He's now developed osteoarthritis, which, he likes to joke, he got from the group.
