Get the 411
In the last few weeks I have had a number of people tell me about a friend, co-worker, or family member who is also surviving breast cancer. There are so many resources out there, especially on the Internet; however, like anything on the Internet, you have to do a little investigating and research to find valid sources. I have a list of resources I find valuable on the right column and I have added a few new ones as well. Some were recommended by my doctor and others I found through my own research. Please pass these along to anyone who might benefit! The most recent additions include:

Women With Cancer - Great resource with tons of valuable information relating to your diagnosis, lifestyle changes, beauty & skincare, and support. It includes tips on how to share the news, suggestions for charting your information, and so much more. A great site.

Treatment and Your Career -- This highlights one section of the same resource. It covers your legal rights in the workplace, tips on how to tell your employer about your diagnosis, disability, insurance information, and support groups. After reading this information, it once again made me realize how lucky I am to have such a supportive and caring employer.

Being Your Own Advocate -- This again is one more section of the same resource. I can't state enough how important this is for ANY of us dealing with ANY medical issue. Your care is your choice -- you have to request the level of care you expect to receive. Whether you are caring for your parent, your child, or yourself, you have to be informed.

This is my story about being diagnosed with breast cancer at age 39. I thought I was out of the woods, but four years late it came back. This is my quest to be a two-time survivor.
