    Celebration (Breast Cancer Support Group): I have joined a breast cancer support organization, www.sisterhoodofsurvivors.org and donate a good deal of time each week.

    Sisterhood of Survivors assists breast cancer patients, their families and survivors through peer support and educational resources.

    The organization has many wonderful programs and volunteer opportunities. I have found volunteering to be very healing for many women. Reaching out to others during this time gives them comfort and insight to their upcoming journey. I wish I had this type of support myself.

    Loss (Lost loved one): My younger sister, a great supporter of mine, died of a broken heart two years ago. She was always there for me while I was in treatment. About the same time as I was diagnosed she was diagnosed with Fibromialgia. Since it was obvious I had a health issue the support flowed to me when she too needed support. I was not thinking clearly at the time and even though she and I made amends I still have regrets.

    This feels good to get this off my chest.

    Side Effects (Weight gain): I weighed 122 the day I was diagnosed and today I weigh 164! It is like it is cemented to my hips.
