Breast Cancer Connections
December 9, 2008

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in September 2007. My friend suggested I check out the Newly Diagnosed Support Group at Breast Cancer Connection (BCC). I’m not much of a people person, but she insisted that I go at least once. Best thing I ever did! Not only did I meet women going through the same thing I was going through, I met women who were near completing their treatment, and thriving! Seeing these women in person gave me a great sense of hope. I learned so much about different chemo drugs available, and their related side effects, that I felt empowered to choose the course of action I would take to cure my particular form of breast cancer. Now I attend the Recovery & Renewal Group at BCC. Once in a while I attend the Newly Diagnosed Group and hope I am an inspiration for others going through this terrible disease.
