About.com Breast Cancer site provides accessible info about breast cancer prevention, treatment, and survival.
Introduction
I'm a freelance writer and breast cancer survivor. I write down-to-earth and easy-to-understand information about breast cancer. This is a good place to learn about prevention, risk factors, diagnosis, treatment, and survival. There is a Forum as well as pages that allow you to share your own experience. All of the info on my site is checked by an oncologist, so it is trustworthy.
