Moms United in the Fight Against Cancer

A blogger named Stella shares the tough news that she has Inflammatory Breast Cancer, and that it was first discovered while she was breastfeeding her baby Danny. That's alot to deal with.

Understandably, Stella is very interested in finding all the information she can on the subject. She and some other women who are also dealing with cancer, are doing their bit by posting whatever they can to inform and to equip other women who may be facing the same thing.

If you're fighting cancer, or know someone who is, Stella can offer up some information and resources to help wage the war.

"What is not commonly known, however, is that a woman’s general risk of breast cancer is increased after she gives birth. Temporarily. For a few years. Contradictory. So, if a mother can make it through the few years of increased susceptibility she decreases her overall chances of breast cancer."
