Beyond the Shock

Today, I discovered an app for an online community for women diagnosed with breast cancer. It is called Beyond The Shock and you can install it for free on your IPhone. It links survivors of the disease to others who are seeking emotional support through the use of education, personal videos, and even a forum for questions and answers.

It is sponsored by the National Breast Cancer Foundation. The guide is unique way to offer women a way to connect and to share their personal stories of how they are connecting and fighting breast cancer.

If you are interested, here is the link for NBCF website.

I also found a book called Coping with Breast Cancer: A Husband's Perspective written by Ricky Sides. I ordered it this evening so I will offer a brief book review soon. The book is about the author's personal account of dealing with his fear, depression, and denial while supporting his wife and taking care of their child.
