I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2016. I was not so much scared, but shocked since I have always been relatively healthy and am not, nor have I ever been on any medication other than daily vitimins, however, my christian faith and my husband and church family were my support system. I prayed a lot, which I do anyway and knew in my heart that whatever happened, my Lord was always there right beside me so I was able to get through the treatments with relative ease. Of course, i was depressed at times and in various degrees. That's when my support system (husband and church members) really encouraged me. My advice to breast cancer patients and survivors is to have a strong faith in God, and yourself and to have a support system in place that you can really count on when the going gets rough, because it WILL get rough and to reach out to any and all forums you come in contact with. It really helps.
