After being diagnosed with breast cancer, my immediate reaction was that this was something that had to be dealt with and was part of my life. I had faith that the cancer could be removed with surgery and had no hesitation in proceeding with a mastectomy, which would allowed to continue living a normal life. Although it was long and draining process, I always believed that there was light at the end of the tunnel. I had the support of family and friends to help me make it thought this extremely trying time. Support, whether family or friend, is crucial in helping to understanding this disease and obtaining all the information about it. Had it not been for the support I received, I would have given up. My support group helped me to keep a positive attitude thought the entire process.
