I have been in contact with a former surgeon who now specializes in nutrition for sick patients up in Washington. I met him through a good friend and here's a email he wrote to my friend....

-Hi R, I am very sorry to read the results of her test. Unfortunately, inflammatory breast CA is a bitch. I am a little hesitant to write her,  I do not want to invade her privacy. When she is ready, I would be happy to talk to her about things she can do to help support her immune system, improve estrogen ratios, and help her through chemo. I would feel more comfortable if she contacted me. My phone is or e-mail. Please assure her that this is not a bother, this is my passion. 

To me: 

-Hi Julie, I know you are going to do great. i have had patients much worse than your disease and they have beat it and are doing fine. I am on my way to Southern Cal. So do you want to talk in a day or two or do you want to do by e-mail. Let me know.

Anyway, I sure did call him back and he sent me a kit that arrived yesterday to test for my Estrogen Metabolism. He also told me what foods to avoid, to eat, and vitamins needed to help my immune system during my chemo party.

I go into the lab later this afternoon to get my blood drawn and send off to the diagnostics lab in North Carolina.
