Chapter: 7 - Conclusion

Subchapter: 1 - Conclusion

The first step down this new road is learning about your diagnosis and treatment options, which you have done by watching Beyond the Shock®. Embarking on this journey requires you to not only be informed, but also to realize that you don’t have to face this alone.

Family, friends, and other breast cancer patients are your shield and safety net, carefully knit together to strengthen you. Alongside them, your triumphs over new hills will be celebrated; your struggles through new valleys endured. They can help you see past the shadows, reminding you that each step–each moment–is precious. Leaning on them for emotional and physical needs isn’t a sign of weakness, but rather a kind of healing for you and for them.

Beyond the Shock® is more than just videos; it is an online community of women around the world who are wrestling with similar emotions, questions, decisions, experiences, and fears.
You can ask questions and give answers. You can watch stories of hope and share your own.

Beyond the shock of breast cancer, there is still life.

      Learning About Breast Cancer

      I just found out almost 3 weeks ago I had breast cancer. First it started as dcis stage 0 then I had MRI and they found another mass 4cm that was invasive. So now I have another biopsy on Tuesday. It's hard but you have to have faith and just live day by day. That's all we can ever do.

      First it takes COURAGE; Courage is doing what you must do when doing what you must do is the hardest thing of all.
      Then you need FAITH; an assured expectation of things hoped for, the evident demonstration of realities though not beheld.

      First it takes COURAGE; Courage is doing what you must do when doing what you must do is the hardest thing of all.
      Then you need FAITH; an assured expectation of things hoped for, the evident demonstration of realities though not beheld.
      Lots of HOPE; Just when the little caterpillar thought her life was over she became a beautiful butterfly.
      And most of all LOVE; Love from all your friends and family praying in your behalf. Love from fellow survivors who show you it can be done. Love of life.

      You go through cancer ONE DAY AT A TIME!

      I had my first treatment two weeks ago. My sister has been a rock star... Drover to chemo, took me to store, picked up my scripts, took me for my neulesta shot, brought me food, made sure I took my meds on time, told me jokes, etc! I will never be able to tell her how much I appreciate her...

      Sorry...hit return... Anyway, I was hungry but couldn't bear to cook. It was one huge thing at a tough time of day that helped more than I anticipated. I have two little kids myself, so I think meals may help your sister! Good luck.

      You should consider genetic counselling to get an accurate assessment of your risks of developing breast cancer especially if your family members were diagnosed with breast cancer at younger ages (less than 50 years).
