My Grandma has breast cancer!

Recommended Posts

I just found out on Thursday that my Gran has breast cancer. It's a waiting game now to see where it's spread, hope she can be saved from it though, aged 86.

She has had a good life though but hope she lives longer but what will be, will be!

Just goes to show that anyone can get it at any age! Her mother died of breast cancer, it is hereditary unfortunately!

Just found out yesterday, the cancer hasn't spread. She is having the operation on the 18th of this month (December).

I'm so glad about that, my Grandma is strong so I'm sure she'll pull through :smiley:

Thanks, winning breast cancer twice is good. My Gran will need a mastectomy, I dont think she likes the idea because its part of being feminine (a female). If it cures her from the cancer, it needs to be done!

That's great news that it hasn't spread! :) My great aunt had a double mastectomy and they took fat from other parts of her body to replace them. I know it's different when it's happening to you but women are more than their breasts, hopefully being cancer free will outweigh her fears of being " less of a female ". Hope the surgery goes well and she has a quick recovery :)

Thanks quarter25, she is still a woman even after she has the mastectomy. Seems like Cancer is more common than one thinks, especially since its hereditary.

My Grandmas mother died of cancer, my other cousin she had cancer but she's cured now thankfully, chemotherapy.

They said with my Gran being 86 years of age, they're going ahead anyway even though she had a triple bypass years ago for her heart!
