Diagnosis and Staging

There are many wonderful sites in cyberspace that provide helpful information regarding breast cancer. We are working to post as many of these sites as possible on our blog and welcome any links to sites you have found helpful. Links will be posted under the TOPICS section by category.

A great resource for Breast Cancer Basics can be found on the http://www.PinkRibbonGirls.org website under Resources in the left menu bar.

Something to consider


You can never know the good,
if you've never known the bad.

You can never be happy,
if you've never been sad.

You've got to taste the bitter,
so you can know the sweet.

You've got to be hungry,
to be glad that you can eat.

You've got to be sick,
to be grateful for your health.

You've got to need money
to appreciate wealth.

There's got to be some problems to rise above
You've got to know lonely so that you can know love.

It's called Opposition, my friends.

A necessary condition in this world of ours.
