In the description of my website I have included these words,
"This site is to promote breast cancer awareness and how to maintain a positive outlook through the trials of life."
I have focused a lot on positivity and optimism through trials, but I feel like I have let the breast cancer awareness portion of my mission slip a little. With the release of my memoir, which let's face it, would not even be here without breast cancer, I feel the need to step up to the plate a bit and start sharing some more info about how we can deal with the beast of breast cancer. (Or any cancer, because in my opinion, cancer is cancer and it is hard no matter what kind you are faced with.)
Hence the creation of my "Survivor Sister Scoop" posts. (I really like blog series, can you tell?)
My intent for this series is to post things that might be helpful to those who have not been diagnosed, who have recently been diagnosed, or who are on the other side of their diagnosis. In other words, my hope is to share information here that will be able all women.
For today's post I would like to share something that I stumbled upon this week. It is geared for those of you who, like me, are on the other side of a cancer diagnosis. It comes from the 5 Under 40 website, which is a website that focuses on young breast cancer survivors.
I just found that the information in this post gave me something to ponder and be aware of.
