Chapter: 1 - Introduction

Subchapter: 1 - Introduction

Each of our lives is a story. We journey along a road of experiences and emotions, passing significant milestones along the way. When suddenly, the road beneath our feet takes a sharp turn, breaking from what was once certain.

Breast cancer causes this break. Perspective ruthlessly shifts; you and your loved ones see the road differently than before.

However, we see the road has not ended–it continues on through new hills and new valleys. We know that life has done this before, curiously forcing us into foreign places and down roads that seemed impassable. Yet somehow these challenges become fertile soil where seeds of strength, love, and resilience mature and grow strong.

Remember, this is a road that has been traversed by thousands of women, women with full lives and loved ones. Women whose dreams–whose lives–were threatened by breast cancer. Women who now share stories of endurance and hope.

Beyond the Shock® is first and foremost a resource for women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. Secondly, it is for their loved ones to gain a better understanding of the disease and to feel a stronger sense of connection. Finally, it is for doctors to reinforce their instruction and advice.

This is the first of a series of videos, divided up into chapters and sub-chapters. These videos will provide information for you to process, share and use to your own benefit. You will learn about breast cancer: it’s types and stages, how it grows, how it is diagnosed, and how it is treated. More than anything else, Beyond the Shock® is a place to gain knowledge for today and receive hope for tomorrow.

      No, not worried, but any time you have changes in your breasts or lymph nodes, have it checked out. Better to be save than sorry. Prayers to you.

      There are some great videos on this site that explains some things in easy to understand terms. Everyone's cancer is unique to them so treatments are made for them and them only. I'm not sure where you live but does you facility have a breast patient navigator? They are trained to help patients get through things such as appointments, treatments, etc. Everyone too handles treatment(s) and the pain differently.

      I don't know a lot about all of this as I was diagnosed ony four weeks ago and had er & prog. pos. infiltrating with neg lymph node involvement. But, you can get a lot of info on the cancer centers of america and cancer care websites. You can also have a live chat with someone at the cancer center website. There is a lot of useful info on treatments, stages & types of cancer. I hope this helps you. Good luck with whatever you are going through. I think everybody on this website are willing to help and we all pray for each other. Learn all you can about your condition and your options.

      Get to know your breasts by doing monthly self exams and note/keep track of any abnormalities you believe you feel. A tumor will grow, normal dense tissue will not. When in doubt have your doctor schedule a mammogram, especially if you're under 40 years old with a family history of the disease....

When in doubt have your doctor schedule a mammogram, especially if you're under 40 years old with a family history of the disease. If you you have no family history have a yearly mammogram beginning at 40.
