    Welcome to all new members.  No question is too small or too silly so ask away, someone will have an answer for you.  Always remember that you have to be your own advocate as you find your way through this whole BC mess.  Make notes/lists to take with you to appointments and if possible have someone with you as your mind will be in a whirl and you may miss something.  Some ladies ask if they can tape the meeting so they can listen later.  All the best.  💖

    Thank you.
    It is very comforting to know that there is such a strong network of supportive women out there and that I am not alone - even though it also makes me feel very sad that breast cancer is such a common experience for so many now!
