Living with Breast Cancer / Re: When should I worry
« on: January 06, 2020, 05:11:39 pm »
if you can- there is nothing better for this situation than peace of mind.
You may think you are being dramatic, but it's better to know.
just go into a screening with your doctor and be sure. It is most likely nothing but if you are really worried about it u should just find out :)

Living with Breast Cancer / Re: feeling guilty/have 3 daughters

Hey ladies, Your daughters love you no matter what. It is absolutely no one's fault if anything is passed on, that just makes you family, and every family has their hardships. The best thing to do is be as honest as possible. It will let them know you love them more than anything, and that you trust them. Wishing you the best of luck.

Yearly checks can be super important. If you feel you or your child need to go to a dermatologist you should definitely go for it. There is no harm in taking precautions!

I hope everyone is having a great holiday season this year! Pauly, maybe a good way to stay motivated is making this our new years resolution. There's no better time to make a new goal or dedication, and commitment to staying active would be a great one! Hope everyone has a happy new year  :D

Hoping it was caught early enough! Any cancer can be scary, but if it is caught early surgery can remove it. Keep us updated

Living with Colon Cancer / Re: flu shot season

If you are not in treatment right now, it is the perfect time for you to get the flu shot. You have a much higher chance of getting infect when you are trying to fight the cancer off, so it is important to do what you can!

I think this story may be helpful. It is a woman named Stephanie explaining her story with chemo and cold caps and how she went about her journey with it. She also discusses the different types of caps there are. Hope it helps, and keep us posted!

That is so great to hear! Please let us know if you have any other questions, and keep us updated.

Hi Morgan, I just wanted to check in to see how to progress is going with your mother?  I know it is hard to help someone who doesn't want the help, especially with cigarettes. I had a family member try to quit smoking and it was a troubling process. I hope everything is well!

Hi Tim, sorry to hear about your difficulty coping with your cancer diagnosis. i suggest you find something to distract away from the cancer. Maybe sign up for some meditation or yoga classes, or other kinds of physical activity if you’re not already doing so. The best thing you can do for yourself when dealing with cancer is to be active and eat healthy, so this will distract you and benefit your diagnosis. Check out these articles on our website to read more about the benefits of exercise:
