Welcome to EmpowHer, and thank you so much for writing.

Can you give us some more detail?

Where exactly is the cancer?

What does the doctor say?

Are you undergoing chemotherapy or radiation?

Have you had surgery?

When were you diagnosed?

Please give us a little more information and we'll try our best to help.
