I have Stage IV breast cancer which spread to my bones in December 2008 and to my liver in August 2011. I have been on constant treatment for all of this time obviously, some have worked better than others but at the moment I'm doing really well and feel as healthy as the next person.
There are many, many treatments for advanced breast cancer and many women live for years and years with a good quality of life.
I know Bernie has spread to more organs than me but I also know of ladies with similar diagnosis to her who are doing well years down the line and I hope she's going to be one of them. She's probably like me and wants to give it as little thought as possible for as long as possible.
