A diagnosis of cancer causes substantial physical and emotional reactions.  This is a life changing event.  Joining a Breast Cancer Support group can help you learn more about the disease, your treatment options, resources, and coping mechanisms.  There are many different types of breast cancer support groups. There are face to face groups as well as online support groups. No matter which type of support group you choose, you are sure to benefit from becoming a member.
