Help for a Friend

I have a dear friend who this week underwent a mastectomy (sp). I have told her about this wonderful web site full of loving and concerned women who help each other and give good advice. Is there a website like this one for breast cancer victims? I have already given her this link to check out HRT.

Love & Hugs,

I'll keep my eye out for a good bulletin board (and maybe someone else knows of one) but a pretty good website on breast cancer with lots of supportive material is at She's got a bulletin board attached but it's not exactly active.

Frankly, I think this place is pretty special, so there might not be one out there that does quite the same thing. It's special because of the personality of "the woman behind the curtain" Kathy Kelley, who created hystersisters and spends her time (and money ) on all 8,000 of us, making sure it all reflects her sense of caring and support. I sometimes take it for granted, I've been trying to help out here for a year and a half ( ) and it feels like an institution, I'm sure, to someone just arriving, but it's really just Kathy and people she's gathered together volunteering.

If it were an institution, then I'd be more sure that there are other boards as good. But how many Kathy's are there?

We'll send good thoughts and prayers to your friend, Marcia. There's some here who've had to deal with breast cancer, so she might make contact with them (email links in the profiles) and of course get any kind of support we can offer.

You're exactly right about this web site - Thanks, Kathy! (if you're listening!) I just clicked on the above princess "funds for Fundraiser" icon - it was so easy and I was more than happy to help with the cause! If we all contribute just a little, I'm sure it'll go such a long way toward keeping this site thriving!

Thanks so much for the quick reply. We have the nicest hostesses. You never feel alone here
