Resources

Books too numerous to list here address a wide spectrum of breast cancer issues. They can be located by a keyword search on Amazon. In addition, a wealth of breast-cancer-related information resides on the World Wide Web. I made ample use of my search engine, with some discretion, to find various topics of particular interest, whether informative websites, advocacy websites, blogs, or chat rooms. Information can also be found in pamphlets and magazines available at hospitals or doctors’ offices.

Below I share some of the resources that have helped–and continue–to guide me and that have helped countless others facing cancer or interested in cancer-related issues.
