Hi everyone. I have just been to lecture by Dr. John Link of The Breast Centre in California. He has been in New Zealand on a lecture tour. His clinic takes a holistic view of BC treatment & they employ, in addition to the usual medical & surgical staff, a nutritionist, a herbalist, a naturopath & an expert in eastern traditional medicine. They produce a book called "The Breast Cancer Survivors Manual". This is a truly empowering book for the newly diagnosed. It explains everything in easily understood detail & outlines the questions you should ask & even gives you a sample file to keep on your treatments & tests & actively encourages you to get second opinions & to demand you get a copy of all test results etc. For all of you newly diagnosed I would thoroughly recommend it. Let's kick some cancer butt. Love & hugs.
