Very honestly, I walk a fine line here. I suspect that most readers (and I hope there are some! Did you see my plea yesterday to please write a comment?) are women who have early breast cancer, but I know that some have advanced/metastatic disease. I am very aware that women with advanced disease too often feel that the breast cancer community ignores them. Once you have moved into that world, it can seem that you are everyone's worst fear, and it is easier to pretend it can't happen.
This is, therefore, a warning. Today's posting is an excerpt and then a link to the wonderful blog, But, Doctor, I hate pink, written by a woman who has Stage IV breast cancer. This is about so-called "easy" chemo which does seem to be an oxymoron. However, if you have the misfortune to become a chemo expert, to have the varied experiences that might entitle you to write the equivalent of a Zagat guide to breast cancer chemotherapies, you would know that some are much more difficult than others.
