Young Breast Cancer Survivor’s Experience and Quest for New Breast Cancer Information – This is a sponsored post by me on behalf of Lifescript.com.
I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009 at the age of 31. You can read more about my journey and watch some of my videos on the Cha Ching Queen Breast Cancer Survivor page. Being diagnosed at a young age created many challenges. It was hard to find relevant information that dealt with women in my demographic. Even though I feel I know a lot about breast cancer now, I still feel there is so much to learn. That’s why I decided to check out Lifescript.com (healthy living for women) and Lifescript.com’s Breast Cancer Health Center to learn more about breast cancer.
Lifescript.com provides medical information, tips and advice that are all written by professional health writers, experts and physicians. Now, that I’m hopefully though with the treatment, I’m looking for information about life after breast cancer. I would like to learn how to live now after such a scary experience, how to deal with lingering side effects from chemo and Neulasta, and how to hopefully prevent a recurrence of breast cancer in the future.
I started reading some breast cancer articles on living with breast cancer. I found a variety of breast cancer news and articles such as Nutrition and Exercise – The Anti-Cancer Diet, Recipes – Best Antioxidant Foods for Cancer Prevention, and Patient Stories – 3 Women Share Their Stories. I always enjoy reading stories about other women’s breast cancer journeys. I like seeing how they handled the ups and downs, treatments, and various surgery options. From reading these articles I learned more about foods I should be eating. I learned I should stock up on “stinky vegetables” (sulfur-containing veggies) like kale, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, and Brussels sprouts. These stinky vegetables help turn off the signals that make cancer cells divide and conquer.
Here’s a picture of me modeling an art bra for a fundraiser benefiting the Austin Breast Cancer Resource Center about 1 1/2 years after my cancer diagnosis.
