Finding Patient Resources

A diagnosis of breast cancer can be devastating to any woman, is usually most unexpected and challenging to a young women under the age of 40, especially those with families. The daily routines of life change in an instant. Resources of all sorts are needed and time to locate them is of the essence.  Fortunately there are many resources available. We've created these resource lists for quick reference and to cover many areas. Many of them were  used by Genevieve and  strengthened her during her cancer journey. Faith, Family, and Friends were of great comfort to her and provided much needed support. Necessary changes in diet and the need to stay fit and healthy were always of primary concern. The resources have been used and recommended by participating breast cancer patients.  Please give us your feedback.
