Review for ABCD: After Breast Cancer Diagnosis, Glendale, WI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Five years ago when I was unexpectedly diagnosed with breast cancer, with no family history, I thought that my life was over, both physically and mentally. I cried for days on end until a good friend told me about ABCD. Scared to make the call to them, and not knowing another sole who had the misfortune of having this diagnosis, I felt isolated and all alone. I got up the courage to call ABCD and their receptiveness and caring was a God sent!!!! They, immediately assigned me a mentor who lived nearby, and I had the pleasure of meeting a caring person that had experienced the exact same diagnosis and went through the same fears and apprehensions that I was experiencing gave me hope and enlightenment.
If it wasn't for ABCD's mentors and ongoing programs, I cannot even imagine what would have become of my mental and physical health prognosis.
I am a 5 year survivor, with the help of a great surgeon, oncologist and the members of ABCD. I wanted to give back what I had graciously received from them, so I took the time to take their mentoring course, and I am now awaiting another anxious and confused patient who, was given the same diagnosis of the BIG "C", breast cancer. I hope and pray that I can be as proactive as a mentor, as the person that guided me through my dark days.
GOD BLESS "ABCD'', AND ALL THE FABULOUS PEOPLE THAT ARE AFFILIATED WITH THIS LIFE SAVING ORGANIZATION...
