Do you have a girlfriend who is dealing with breast cancer? A sister, Mother or friend? As the most frequent cancer among women in the U.S., with over 2 million breast cancer survivors, so many of us have friends and family dealing with this terrible disease. As a girlfriend, it’s tough to know how to be a good friend during this time.
To help us understand this situation, I invited TAMI BOEHMER to share her advice. Tami is a breast cancer survivor whose friends and family have shown incredible support for each other while going through a very disruptive time in life. And I asked Tammy to give us the insight into life as a breast cancer survivor so we can all get past the awkwardness or uncomfort and be there for our friends, like we know they’d be there for us. Tami has some great advice for being friends with any women over the counter prozac dealing with any cancer or serious condition.
Tami, her husband Mike and daughter Chrissy “Keep the Positive Energy Flowing” on their family blog – read it for more about Tami and her great insight and positive energy. Tami is collecting stories about amazing things accomplished by cancer survivors, so please send her your stories.
Thanks Tami for the insight you shared! See our recent press release on how to be a friend to a girlfriend with breast cancer – written with Tami’s great advice and assistance. (Thanks again Tami!)
UPDATE: It is with deep sadness that I share that Tami is no longer here. She made such a difference in her time on earth. I’m blessed to have known her and to have the opportunity to share her message.
