Women can help each other

I think that's important for one person to help another who is going through it. When I was going through my lumpectomy and radiation, a woman I didn't know at all (but was a friend of a friend) called and talked to me and told me how radiation was. She met good people there and she had a great time and all that stuff. So that helped. And a friend of mine from Mason had a friend from her church who had just been told she had a tumor and had a lumpectomy (and all the things I did) and she was scared to death. So my friend said could she call you and talk to you? I said sure. So I was able to help her, I think, in talking to her.
