Breast Cancer Part 5: Support
Published: 10/31/2012

To support national education during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Wednesday’s Daily Tip throughout October will focus on breast cancer awareness, prevention and treatment. 

Battling breast cancer is more than just attempting to heal physically – the mental and spiritual aspects are important as well. Talking about the issue at hand, allowing people to help out when needed, and creating a recovery plan can all help make addressing the process a little easier. Support groups are widely available to help the women, men, and families who are battling breast cancer – look for one where the participants and programming is upbeat. From group programs and one-on-one counseling to online support communities, sharing your experiences, both good and bad, can be therapeutic for yourself and others. This can be especially important for caregivers. Visit the American Cancer Society at for a list of resources, links and local support options.
