OK decision made... doing nothing, no more treatment and keeping as well as I can :~(
3 yrs treatment is long enough!!!!!!
You don't need to hear you are brave but you are. You don't need to hear how much we want you to get better but we do.
You don't need to hear you are an inspiration because you just want to be well.
You have valiantly kept going with treatment after treatment for three years, always hoping for something a little bit more I am sure.
You have made such a difficult decision. One I am fearful of one day having to make too. May life, treatment free be beautiful, time to treasure with Steve and the kids.
Sending you big warm hugs.
When I got your message the other day my heart sank for you and your beautiful family. I am having troubles knowing what to say as I know this must have been a realy hard decision for you and Steve - if there is anything I can do to help, please let me know.
I just wanted you to know how much I have valued our on-and-offline friendship Sam. The fight, the love, the kindness, the support you continue to show for everyone around you it just amazing!
Look after yourself Sammy and I look forward to many more updates.
Love and kisses, Dainaxxx
Your decision is a decision that no one should ever have to make. How hard it must have been for you all.
You have obviously already travelled a very long hard and mountainous road to get to where you are. It is obvious from you posts that you are one hell of a brave and very special lady.
You are lucky to have such a wonderful husband and beautiful children.
I am also wishing you amazingly beautiful days ahead of you and your family.
Thinking of you and wishing you nothing but the best.
Lots of Love always, Mich xoxo

Firstly thank you for all of your positive blogs - they have given strength to many and also kept us "in touch" with your progress. We could say so much - how shitty this disease is to attack beautiful people etc etc.....especially yourself. You have heard it all. Just know Sam that you are special and really loved by your Pink Sisters. Hugs and love to you Sam. XLeonie

You are such a beautiful person and have touched all our hearts. Your family are so lucky and proud of you.
I hope that each day brings you smiles, happiness and laughter. Cherish every moment. Take all the special moments and memories and remember them in your heart.
I have read all your blogs, from when I was diagnosed. You are such a trooper.
Take care my beautiful Pink Sister.
And please keep us posted.
Love always Julie XX
Thank you for letting us know. I was thinking of you the other week, wondering how things were going. You have helped me with your blogs, to understand some issues, with those facing advanced BC and their loved ones.
I have been quietly keeping watch on your blogs ever since I was diagnosed on 6/6/2011 with TNBC...
I watched my Mum do as you have done with treatment after treatment up until the day she passed & I have never admired another woman with such a passion to survive like her until I 1st read your blog!
The only time I come on this site now is to keep an eye on your progress for some reason. I think its because you always seem to keep on keeping on even in your darkest moments. I feel happy for you & your choice & also sad at the same time, but I know that you will be feeling better again.
I wish you all the very best in have quality of life instead of quantity to spend with your loved ones.
Blessing you with a safe & peaceful journey to the otherside!
Brightest Blessings, Love & Light,
Sam, i feel sorry that you have had to make this decision, I hope you have lots of great time with your family, thanks for updating us. Dawn xx
I am so sorry you have had to go through this whole experience. Breastcancer is so crap!
I wish you good health for ages, and lots of chances for fun times with your family :-)
You are such a wonderful person, and such a fighter, and have given us all so much strength. Enjoy your beautiful family, and know that you are surrounded by love from everywhere. You are a very special person, and I admire you so much. Love and hugs and strength,
May you all find the strength you need to get through. I lived every second of this nightmare with my mum (diagnosed with primary & secondary BC at the same time) for 2 years before making the same decision. She died in my arms 10 months ago. The pain has not eased and I know it never will. For me, it's simply a matter of adjusting to a life without her now. Going through the endless scans, chemo, meds, fatigue, appointments etc etc is heartbreaking enough. You are in my thoughts and prayers (even though my faith has somewhat diminished). May you find comfort in each other and in those around you. Sending you strength and love.
Hi Sam, hope you are doing ok, and spending valuable time with your family
Best wishes. Dawn xx
I Hope health and happiness is flooding you and your amazing family. I cannot for one second imagine what you have had to go through, but what i do know is that you have been such an inspiration to me and so many other women with that fighting spirit you carry around with you. I really hope the quality of time spent with your family now is just so magical it doesn’t end. God bless you Samantha and believe that miracles do happen
