What would you say to a women just diagnosed?
Do not be afraid to ask for help. You will want to do all the things that you were doing before, but your body will tell you otherwise. Call on your village, whether big or small to help you get through this most difficult time. And if you don’t have a village, there are many resources that your medical team can provide to you-you just have to ask.
