Rest Peacefully Kathleen Good


Diagnosed January 2012, Stage 2b, Lumpectomy, chemo, rads

April 2013- Recurrence with a 1cm. mets to liver and a derma-metastasis across the chest.  About 1 month after celebrating 1yr "cancer free", started getting little skin bumps (skin mets) across chest and a tumor had returned to the same breast had surgery on. Ct scan then also showed a liver met.
June 2013- Liver met has shrunk 90% after just 6wks on Xeloda, Methotrexate and Vinovelbine 

Dec 2013- The clinical trial I was on (for a PARP inhibitor) did nothing for me. The cancer has grown in my liver and now there are 3 spots. It has also grown in my spine and spread to my hip.  

Had no genetic mutations at all, but the cancer mutated giving me BRCA 1 and 2, pi3k and some others.  When they sampled the biopsy of my recurrence, that was when the mutations were discovered. When first diagnosed and tested- I had no genetic mutations.

Kathleen was a part of our TNBC Sisters group and has always been very supportive of all of us.

I'm sad to read about the death of Kathleen. I am also very curious how she became BRCA 1 and 2+ after testing negative initially. How can that happen? That is scary.

My thoughts go out to her family and friends. May she rest in peace.

Lisa, I've heard that you can be tested and it can come back negative and then get tested a 2nd time and come back positive... I'm not quite sure, I never been BRCA tested.  I copied and pasted as exactly as quoted from one of her postings.
