I began researching breast cancer after a mammogram turned up two lumps and I was referred to a surgeon for a biopsy. At that time there were not many good sites that pulled information together - and my mind was not clear enough to concentrate on doing it myself. The lumps turned out to be benign, but I couldn't stand the thought of others in my position wandering the Internet in search of information. That was the beginning of this site.
This site is for us. To teach and support us through the biopsies,
lumpectomies, chemo, radiation... all the emotional roller coasters.
It's about the physical changes and how finding a lump - and all that it can mean - transforms
our careers, our families and our lives.
