Just When You Thought You Were All Done…

Over the last few weeks, we’ve discussed a number of side effects on this blog, from lymphedema to sexual changes, which can result from being diagnosed with cancer and its treatment. If you’re lucky, you may avoid all or most of them. However, we want you to be aware that it is not unusual for women to experience these side effects months - or even years - after treatment, earning them the name “late effects.”

If this happens, don’t think you’re a freak or alone. Read on to learn more about late effects and to find other resources on how to deal with them.

Mississippi's Young Breast Cancer Survivor Network

Young women with breast cancer face unique issues. And in the South, there are more young women overall facing breast cancer. In Mississippi, young African-American women are significantly more likely to suffer from breast cancer.

That is why SurvivMISS is here. Part of the Gulf States Young Breast Cancer Survivor Network, SurviveMISS's mission is to help improve the quality of life for young breast cancer survivors, as well as their family and friends, by providing continuing resources and support.
