I'm in awe of the amazing courage of those who battle breast cancer. I'm also in awe of the friends and family who support them through it (often in the form of a casserole or well-timed milkshake). My friend Susan Shofner fought her battle and continues to win it every day as a 18-year breast cancer survivor. Susan was kind enough to share what she learned. We hope it will help you -- whether you're the one faced with a diagnosis or the one holding her hand.
What scared you the most when you were diagnosed? The unknown. Once I had knowledge and understood my options, it eased my fear. Now don't get me wrong, there were nights that I would go down the rabbit hole, but knowledge is what kept me on solid ground.
