One of the best things that has happened to me is a telephone support group. I had the opportunity to speak with other women in the same or similar situation as me. It brought me great comfort to be able to speak with these women, share our stories, give each other tips on getting through treatment, being able to have questions answered. I got a feeling of hopefulness in a very frightening time in my life.Karen
