One in eight women will get breast cancer in her lifetime. Every two minutes, a woman in the U.S. is diagnosed with breast cancer. If you've been diagnosed, seek out resources including friends, friends-of-friends, support groups, cancer support centers and more. This American Cancer Society site is a place to start to find resources.
There are great resources out there for any questions you may have about a diagnosis, so seek them out. During this scary time, general search engine queries are not your friend. Instead, find survivors via friends and online support groups. And talk to your doctors and nurses to make sure that you’re getting the facts about your case from qualified professionals. Try this Cancer Research Institute site for more information.
