But Doctor I Hate Pink
This is a blog that I've been reading since shorlty after my father died. I think the author Ann is amazing and hilarious. Her opinions are always well-founded (regardless of whether or not I agree with them.) I admire her, and reccomend you check her out and feel inspired.
Environtmental Working Group
After being diagnosed, I wanted to adopt a "greener lifestyle." The EWG website really helped me to better understand the products I use every day, and their Skin Deep app has completely changed how I shop.
Fertile Hope is a division of Livestrong, which helps young people undergoing therapies that can compromise their fertility to understand the risks of their treatment and in certain cases help subsidizes the costs of these expensive treatments. They are an incredible organization that helped me tremendously and has followed up with me as I've undergone treatment.
Penguin Cold Caps Website
I hadn't heard of Cold Caps until I was about to undergo chemotherapy. They have completely changed my experience of treatment by allowing me to keep my hair. If you are daunted by the prospect of hair loss, definitely check out this site.
Susan G. Komen Website
Many people in the BC Community have opinions about Susan G. Komen as a charity. However, this website helped me find a free mammogram as a woman under 40. For that alone I reccomend this site. It's also extremely user friendly and helped me more fully understand my daignosis.
The Radical Remission Project
After I was diagnosed, I reached out to Dr. Kelly Turner. While I have taken a conventional treatment approach to my illness, her advice led me to embrace many complementary treatments which I believe have allowed me to remain strong and vibrant while undergoing chemotherapy. The stories she shares are truly remarkable and inspiring.
Young Survival Coalition
After I was diagnosed, I found this website extremely helpful. Simply reading the stories of other women my age made me feel like I wasn't alone in my diagnosis.
