I should have realized this fact many years ago - instead of thinking (since cancer does not run in my family) I would be safe. If you are a woman, you too are at risk of developing breast cancer, regardless of family history. Please take steps now to minimize you cancer risks so you can avoid looking like this (my MRI image above showing three malignant tumors in my right breast totally 5.5 centimeters in size).
This site has been created by a breast cancer survivor who documented her experience and what she learned from intense research on the subject of breast cancer and cancer survival in hopes of helping others fight this deadly disease. This site also includes information on how to minimize your cancer risks (your risk of all types of cancer, not just breast cancer). The information presented is for general information only and is not intended in any way to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.
For the purpose of giving an identity to this site, my name is Janet Dee. I am 53 years old, married, no children, working full-time, and (until diagnosed with breast cancer) considered to be in excellent health. I'm sure as you read through this site, you will begin to wonder how a person recently diagnosed with breast cancer, and who wrote the words you're reading while undergoing chemotherapy can label herself a breast cancer survivor. My answer: There is no doubt in my mind that I will survive this. Therefore, I am a survivor.
This is my survival story, written to help others learn how I fought and won my battle with breast cancer. My story was written during various phases of my experience, which is why some sections read in the present- and others in the past tense.
My husband asked me, "What is the most important piece of information you want to convey in this website?" My answer: You are in charge of your body; you can control what happens in the course of fighting breast cancer; and you can beat it. Stay positive and focused. Your mind has far more control in this battle than you might realize.
I hope by sharing my experience and my research, I will help you better prepare for your journey ahead. I have no vested interest in any of the products and supplements I recommend.
