I have been diagnosed with metastatic/stage 4/terminal breast cancer. 

May 3, 2010  it was discovered that I had small nodules between the lining and lung sack on my right side.

We returned to U of MN Cancer Clinic for treatment.

The cancer has continued to stay there and as also moved to some lymph nodes in the chest area and now to the liver.

I have been on eight different drug treatments.  I stay on the drug(s) until they appear to stop working, do scans, if results are stable treatment continues, if progression of cancer then change drug treatment, repeat, repeat, repeat.  There is no cure, so this continues until all treatment options have been tried or the side effects become too difficult.
