Guide for Newly Diagnosed

Posted by at 8:48 AM
Fight Pink has included a link to a pdf document that was developed by a non-profit group called Living Beyond Breast Cancer (LBBC). The guide was written with women who have recently been diagnosed with breast cancer in mind.

The guide is divided into six sections focusing on coping with the news, information you need immediately, treatment basics, support to get you through tomorrow, moving toward the future and resources for finding additional information and support. Interspersed are lists you can use to talk with those who care for you, including “10 Questions to Ask Your Doctor About Treatment,” “10 Common Feelings and Fears at Diagnosis,” “10 Questions to Ask Your Doctor About Your Pathology Report” and “10 Tips on Getting Good Support.”

Find the pdf guide on this page, or by clicking here.
