Life Is Good

At 35, my sister found lumps in both breasts. Her doctor said she was too young for breast cancer — she listened. Five years later, she was diagnosed. She battled it for seven years before dying of leukemia, which was caused by her chemo. Four months later, I discovered a lump in my breast...

Jessica's Story

In the summer of 2012 my life changed — I was diagnosed with Stage 1 breast cancer at age 25.

Sometimes I feel like my 20's have been stolen from me. Dating as a cancer survivor who still goes through treatment is difficult. I love to flirt, to go on dates, to meet new people. But I sometimes worry…

Angela's Corner: Your Support System

Angela's Corner: Your Support System

In all aspects of life, we need to have a great support system. We may need support to help lose the extra weight left over from pregnancy (even if it was 10 years ago), to exercise, or to help us through a difficult time in our lives. For me, there are a few close family and friends I know I can always count on. They are the ones that when something arises, they say, "This is what I am doing for you," without any asking on my part. Those friends and family are the support a girl needs.

I cannot begin to explain the importance of such an amazing group of people standing behind you and the roles they play in your life. But, I'm going to try my best.

First, you have your immediate family. Your family is there to love you as best they can. There is no way they would want to let you fight this alone. Being diagnosed with cancer is not only scary for you, but for those closest to you as well. We need to keep in mind their fragile state. It's not a focus, but sometimes they need some extra support themselves...

OUR FAVORITE PROJECTS
Mammograms For African Women
All over the world, breast cancer is on the rise. In Sierra Leone, breast cancer is the leading cause of death among women. Most women don't seek treatment until the disease has progressed to stage 3 or stage 4. Due to the scarcity of equipment and trained radiologists, breast cancer screening is very expensive in many parts of Africa. In Sierra Leone, there is only one mammography machine. Considering most households in Sierra Leone earn less then $375 a year, mammograms are simply unaffordable for most people. Develop Africa provides much needed education about risk factors associated with the disease and the importance of early detection. Donations through this Gift That Gives More™ covers the cost of essential educational materials for breast cancer. Thank you!
