Hello All,

Marriage/committed partnerships are hard work. They require a level of effort, dedication and commitment. A cancer diagnosis often brings out the best and worst of you and your partner.

We would like to compile a section of stories, inspirations, concerns, etc. to help others in the midst of it all, or just receiving a diagnosis. Know we would never use your name (even your screen name, if you prefer). If you wouldn't mind us sharing excerpts or quotes from what you share and putting it in on our Facebook page, please indicate that as well (no names used, naturally). You can post your stories here in the boards, email mjenkins@breastcancer.org, or PM the moderators. If you have questions about sharing on Facebook , please feel free to email Krystyne (khayes@breastcancer.org). Thank you!

Here are just a few thoughts….

When were you most grateful for your partner?

Share some ways to keep the intimacy in your relationship when sex is out of the question

How did you and your partner prioritize each other/keep each other first?

What dates did you go on during treatment? Share date ideas, tips for other couples
