A breast cancer diagnosis can take an emotional and physical toll on you and your family. While treating the cancer is of prime importance, don't ignore the emotional strain.
Many women with breast cancer (and others with different types of cancer) find support programs offer help with the strain it places on relationships. Support groups and other programs help you deal with breast cancer and its many complications.
Your first step toward a healthy lifestyle is making an appointment with your family doctor. Together, you and your doctor can discuss the best options for breast care. Would you like to find a primary care doctor?
Some programs are just for women diagnosed with breast cancer, while others include family members who also must deal with the disease and how it changes life.
