Breast Cancer Survivors Speak Out!
The woman’s outburst generated interest. Indeed, few wondered aloud what she was on about. - Then she explained. “I refer to our breasts as one nation since most of us have lost one breast to breast cancer.” The explanation of the woman, who is in her early 50s, triggered another round of jokes. Gathered at the venue were about 35 women – all breast cancer survivors. They were there for their monthly Support Group designed to increase the support network of the people in the group, and also a healthy resource for breast cancer survivors to cope and heal in the recovery process following diagnosis and treatment.
