I’ve just been diagnosed with breast cancer. What do I do now?
Stop, react, adjust, and make a game plan. Allow yourself moments alone to give yourself time to process your thoughts and be in touch with your feelings – get away to places that make you feel calm, relaxed and good about yourself. Don't necessarily do anything yet. Moments alone will allow you to get your head clear enough to understand what it is you want to do next, determine with whom you need to share your news, in what order, how and when. Begin to make lists of all the questions you want to ask your doctor and all the people who can possibly help you or might know something about your diagnosis.
