Sharing Your Story

When I was first diagnosed, I already knew leaders of an African American breast cancer support group. As an consultant working with organizations to evaluate their effectiveness, I worked with the group three years prior to being diagnosed.  I was fortunate to have access to a network of wonderful women who readily shared their stories and became an awesome resource for me as I navigated my journey and major decisions such as choosing reconstruction.  During our support groups I found parts of my developing story in their stories and soon could contribute my experience to our collective experience.  Our unique journeys can illuminate paths for others, encourage us through difficult realities, and lift each other as we adjust to a new normal. Consider how your journey might inform and support another sister’s journey and then Go Sister Go! Share it!
