As you go through cancer treatments, many find themselves dealing with additional emotional issues aside from the physical side effects of treatment. These emotional issues can also arise after treatments are finished.
For women dealing with breast cancer, these issues are sometimes amplified even more from the changes to their bodies as a result of treatments.
Finding a good support system to help you through this period on your journey is key to helping navigate these times.
For those breast cancer patients and survivors in Second Life, there is the ACS Cancer Survivors Network inworld. This is a peer to peer support group, connecting people who have fought cancer who will provide support, advice, and encouragement to cancer patients in Second Life who are undergoing treatment and other survivors.
For all breast cancer patients and survivors there is also the Reach To Recovery program available through the American Cancer Society.
The most important thing to keep in mind is you are never alone.
