BREAST CANCER: What do we get for all this?

The last couple of days, I've been plagued with muscle hurts that may or may not be from Tamoxifen.  This morning, before I leave the house, I'm shamelessly grabbing another quote from Sunrise Rounds:

So, without being callous, I do not wish that cancer patients return to the person they were.  I hope that in trade for their struggle they gain new knowledge, grace, balance and perhaps peace.  Maybe they will come to understand a purity or beauty in a particular relationship, a fulfillment in their work, honesty in thought or simply the vital ability to just say, “No.”   James Salwitz, MD
