On an intermittent basis over the past few years, I have attended Thrive's Survivorship Group. The other young women with breast cancer I have met always amaze me with their positive attitude and giving spirit. I always walk away from the Survivorship Group with that warm, fuzzy supported feeling I came looking for. Having a breast cancer diagnosis is so hard, getting that diagnosis at a young age is even harder. The fact that Thrive offers these meetings in the comfort of a fellow survivor's house over dinner also helps me feel more normal, unlike other groups offered in a hospital setting. Knowing that I am not alone is so wonderful. Thank you, Thrive, for your wonderful meetings!
