    Greetings Anoymous, I am so thankful that God has given me another chance at life. After being diagnosed with Triple Negative stage 2 A grade 3 Breast Cancer {51/2} years ago. I promised myself and God that since I was chosen to make a difference I would share any and all information about the journey I had to go through to get where I am today. Most importantly for me is that I want the world to know that being diagnosed with breast cancer is not a death sentence and that early detection is the key. I will always be willing to share my story with anyone on or off this site. And if any employer would not accept you for employment because of your diagnoses I beleive will reap what they sow! None of us asked to be diagnosed with breast cancer and know one knowes what is manifesting in their bodies. It's so sad that public records information is shared on the internet so why not share informtion that could save a life. Stay encouraged. I promise you that I will keep you in my prayers as you continue to seek employment. I feel in my heart that you will be blessed to find a job for who you are, including your skills and not because you were diagnosed with breast cancer. By the way after I was diagnosed I also started having luncheons, bake sales silent auctions and educational events at work in October which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month in order to raise monies for Cancer Organizations and to bring awareness to my females and male co-workers. To my surprise the participation by my co-workers continues to be100% and the monies raised grows higher each year. Keep me posted, Love and Blessings Your Proud Sister Of Hope!!

    I am with Marianne.... we are all fighters here and have a special kind of pride having beat breast cancer or are presently in the midst of battle. We are proud to be here and happy we can help and support our sisters through our experiences. Nothing is quite as sweet as having another day here to live our lives to the fullest. Good luck to you. Sharon

    When I first got diagnosed with Breast cancer in 2003 not many women were talking about it and sharing their experiences. I felt I should and needed to shout it from the roof tops and tell people it's okay to have breast cancer or any other type of cancer by sharing my story I'm helping the next person. It's an awesome feeling to be able to help someone, it's healing and invigorating. Anyone can access my story on the web at http://home.roadrunner.com/~amj/ it's been posted since 2004. and I'm always amazed when someone comes up to me and tells me they have read my story and they have passed it on to a family member or friend or that it helped them through their own cancer experience. As the others ladies have stated any employer who looks down on you for your diagnosis or what you have posted to help another person would not be worthy to have me as one of their employee's.... We should not hide....we are all survivors....Pink Sisters and friends....

    I understand your concern. You are worried that someone will use this information as a reason not to hire you. You need to pray that God will lead you to the right job, and He will make sure you get it. I find reading Matthew 6 very comforting, particularly 6:25 - 34. I hope you too find comfort from reading these verses. I will pray for you.

    Quite frankly everyone deals with everything differently and if you don't want anyone to see your name on here you can always change it and use a different name here so that if someone googles your real name they won't see this. I can't understand why people don't understand this might be a touchy subject for you. This is your choice hon. Do whatever you have to and don't listen to anyone. Whatever feels right and makes you comfortable. :)

    Well said, ladies! The questions and answers on Beyond The Shock are public because we wanted anyone looking for help or information to be able to look up questions and find the answers easily. We do give you the option to be anonymous (as you already know) and if you wish for something even more anonymous, you can join our support site, www.MyNBCF.org. MyNBCF is completely private and the only people who can see any of the conversations are registered users. Hope this helps clarify things!
