Breast Cancer

Being diagnosed with breast cancer is naturally very frightening for you and your family. Remember that there have been several advances in the treatment of breast cancer. Successful outcomes are common and many women live long and productive lives after treatment. Cures are possible, especially if breast cancers are found early when they are still small.


After diagnosis, you will be referred to a cancer centre where you will meet with an oncologist (a cancer specialist). He or she will review your case with you. There are many people at the cancer centre able to give you support and the information you need.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in Aug/2006 (HER-2 Positive) I'm done with chemo, almost done with Radiation and I still have Hormone Therapy until Dec/07 (Herceptin) I am doing great. The best therapy for me was to remain positive. I had five weeks of Radiation and stayed at the Daffodil Lodge; I have never laughed so much! Everyone one here is so caring. I am glad to go home but I am also sad because I will miss all of my new friends; but we will keep in touch through e-mails. I truly believe that positive thinking helps the healing process.
