America's Fastest Growing Private Companies
Austin, Texas (PRWEB) May 6, 2010
A vital new support website for young breast cancer survivors which focuses on supporting the real-world issues of recovery, including dating, body image, sex life, and unexpected physical conditions not covered by the medical establishment, launched in April 2010. Beyond The Boobie Trap lends creative, practical support in a humorous way with a wide range of resources for growing numbers of women - nearly a thousand in just the first three weeks. Designed to offer survivors an in-depth way to understand the ‘new normal’ of life, members access information through expert interviews, targeted classes and focused news highlights on relevant issues. The website can be found at: http://www.BeyondTheBoobieTrap.com.
Beyond The Boobie Trap explores the ‘edges’ of what young survivors need to know to emerge from recovery with renewed life vitality. Site members learn how to adapt to life post-recovery within a community through such offerings as book and movie reviews that focus on progressions out of treatment, spotlight survivor stories and self-discovery modalities not typically associated with recovery. As a for-profit website, there is a capacity to adjust organically to the needs of this growing community in terms of topical content and creative life support.
“It’s important for young survivors to know there’s a place for them to go to learn how to adapt to being themselves in a whole new way. My intention is to give these women real-world information so they can create a new life post-recovery with all the information and support they need and which isn’t addressed in the medical model that just kicks them out as healed,” says Genae Girard, owner of Beyond The Boobie Trap, motivational speaker and author of her new book, Off The Rack: Chronicles of a Thirty-Something, Single, Breast Cancer Survivor.
As a self-proclaimed over-achieving type-A personality, Genae Girard typically takes on monumental goals and wins them. A native Texan, in 1994 at the young age of 26, Genae started a veterinary distributorship located in Central Texas. During her 13 years with the company, it was listed for three consecutive years in the Austin Business Journal's "50 Fastest Growing Private Companies", and #82 on the Inc. 500 list of "America's Fastest Growing Private Companies". In July 2006, that all changed when she got her breast cancer diagnosis. Now an advocate for young breast cancer survivors, she was the protagonist in a landslide case recently decided by the Supreme Court on gene patenting for a breast cancer diagnostic test. Genae has been featured in numerous news programs, magazines, and radio shows such as: 60 Minutes, Wall Street Journal, New York Times, CBS News, USA Today and others.
