Breast cancer is a family fight, and for a child who wants to know that everything will be okay or for a parent with questions about what their child is going through, many of those answers can be found on
Boerne, Texas (PRWEB) June 23, 2010
Brenda Coffee, founder of BreastCancerSisterhood.com, recently announced the addition of two new features to the fast-growing website created to support and enlighten the entire breast cancer family. A new blog from a college student and former teen caregiver along with a community forum, "My BreastCancerSisterhood," provides two new avenues for the global breast cancer family to meet, share stories, ask questions and get answers.
BreastCancerSisterhood.com provides practical and potentially life-saving information even the best of doctors and existing websites often fail to mention. Information and expertise is shared via more than 100 original content videos and the award-winning "Brenda's Blog."
"Amy's Blog" provides the perspective of a teenager who became her mother's caregiver. Amy Gutierrez was 13 years old when her mother was diagnosed and her older sister was heading off to college. Today, at age 19 and with her mother's breast cancer in remission, "Amy's Blog" offers candid insights into the mind of a teen and the struggles he/she may have regarding their parent's cancer as well as life in general.
"My older sister was the one I went to when I needed help coping with my mother's fight against breast cancer," Gutierrez said. "Now I want to be that big sister to children who might not be comfortable talking to anyone else about it."
Coffee notes, "Breast cancer is a family fight, and for a child who wants to know that everything will be okay or for a parent with questions about what their child is going through, many of those answers can be found on "Amy's Blog."
The community section, My BreastCancerSisterhood, brings the vast breast cancer family together for conversations, support, inspiration and information. Here, users are encouraged to share wisdom, connect directly with others, learn about upcoming events, share videos, photos and blogs. Coffee hopes everyone touched by breast cancer will join, including husbands/caregivers, teens, tweens, friends, patients and more.
Founded by cancer survivor Brenda Coffee, the Survivorship Media Network's Breast Cancer Sisterhood.com® represents one sister reaching out to help and empower another by giving the gift of survivorship. The Breast Cancer Sisterhood's mission is to revolutionize the way life-saving information and support is disseminated to newly diagnosed breast cancer patients, existing survivors, patients with recurrence, husbands, caregivers, children and extended friends and family. While there are many Websites devoted to breast cancer, few are practical, straightforward and contain most of the information patients and families need. The site helps families cope with the ravaging physical and emotional effects of treatment and enables them to move forward with their lives.
