My name is Liz and I used to always come the breast cancer boards years ago. I haven't been here for a long time. I live in Wisconsin. I can't remember everyone's name. Thanks to "Rachael" I was directed to this board. It's been almost 16 years since my diaganosis. So far so good. I had a right mastectomy. I remember Melissa and I remember "Barb" I think she lived in Tennessee. At first I was thinking Missouri, but now that I think about it, it was Tennessee, near Memphis maybe? I remember a gal that lived in Wisconsin, in Rhinelander and she worked at a highway shop or something, like where my husband works as a heavy equipment operator (drives the big snow plow trucks, etc). I remember there being a gal from Switzerland. All kinds of neat women. They would all meet every year in one of the cities or towns that one of them were from. I never attended, but loved hearing from the ones who did. I would love to reconnect to see how everyone has been doing. I know you are all still out there. I pray that you all are doing fine. Take care. And send me a message if you remember me. Back then I had blonde hair too....now my hair is more natural Not sure if we shared pictures or not. It was before Facebook
