You've been diagnosed with breast cancer?
So sorry that you've been hit with this, especially at a young age. Glad that you posted here. You can get a lot of support and information here, as you move through a treatment plan.
There are threads on this forum for younger women that you will find helpful. You can do a search for them and I am sure that the moderators can help you find them.
What can you do? First, it's okay to cry about it. It's a big deal and you have the right to feel shaken by this. Second, rely on support from close family and friends that you trust. You don't need to do this alone. Third, be sure to find a medical team that you trust. If you live in a city with a major cancer center, you might find their resources useful, in addition to high quality care. Fourth, remember this: you came to the right place here. Lots of survivors are here to encourage you.
Keep us posted on things...anytime, and as you get more info about your diagnosis.
You are not alone. We're here for you.
