“I’m too young for this…”
Were you forty or younger when you were diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer? This section is for you.
We are happy to add this section to the blog to mirror the Teens to 40 section of our main site. Our host for this section is Jennifer Smith, a young woman who is herself living with MBC, and author Learning to Live Legendary — A Memoir.
We wanted to include these stories here on the blog, as well as on the main site, to allow and encourage your comments, questions and sharing. Having MBC is often lonely, but having it as a young woman brings particular challenges.
Each story will have its own link in the drop-down menu for this tab, on the blog’s home page. We will also provide links on the main site.
If you would like to submit your story for this section, please email Jen at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any suggestions about this section of the blog or would like to submit a blog post, please contact Kathi at email@example.com.
