thank you for your site!  What a find for me.  I too was misdiagnosed.  I noticed a profound change in my breast at the beginning of 2008 which my doctor put down to my age and being perimenopausal.  At the end of 2008 at my next annual I again showed her and told her that I did not feel this was right but the explinations she gave and the trust I had even against the voice raging in my head made me believe all was really ok.  My mammogram came back with a suspicious change which led to a biopsy which came back with a dx on Jan 21 of IDC.    I have two young kids and I am fighting for them as much as for myself. 

The one thing I want to do is to raise awareness that 1.  Mammograms need to happen way before 40 years of age and 2. Doctors need to see breast cancer diffrently.

I sat through my mastecomy information class with a 25 year old woman.  There has to be a better way.  I want to say that I am beginning to do my homework and am looking for ways to get my voice heard.  If there is anything I can do to help you please let me know.  If cancer has taught me nothing else it is that I need to try to speak for those who come after me.

I wish you the best of health.
