Re: CHEMO OR NOT??

Hi Lisa, I am also new to this site and am just trying to negotiate my way around. I notice your post was written quite a few months ago, and this response is really late. Just want to let you know I am thinking of you and I hope all is going well with your journey. If you underwent the chemo, I hope you had a positive result. Good luck!
