Found a Warrior Story |

I just read your story on Dating After Breast Cancer. I love love loved your story. I have just recently been diagnosed with the same type of cancer DCIS. Also very early.  I JUST finished telling my friend that I’m going to stop reading stories online because until I found yours, EVERY SINGLE ONE I read was so depressing — about being less of a woman; being in pain; looking ugly, blah blah blah blah.  I’m looking for warrior stories but finding sadness. THEN I found your story and felt so much better. It is a big deal to me to start dating after my mastectomy. I’ve got lots of worries about finding a guy who will accept my scars. Thanks for giving me something positive!
