Four years ago, I felt like I was completely alone in my relentless questioning of the “standard of care” regarding DCIS. Yet I knew there had to be many more women like me who were feeling the same uncertainty and wishing for better, healthier and saner solutions. I knew other women must be searching like I was.
I had no idea how to create a blog or website, yet in December of 2011, two years into my DCIS journey, I was “highly motivated.” I felt compelled to share my personal experiences, thoughts and resources. DCIS 411 was created in less than a month. My goal was to be the website I had so desperately searched for, yet did not find.
It’s been four years for me now on this wild DCIS roller coaster ride and while I am still searching for better, saner solutions, I am so grateful for the many enlightening discoveries along the way. One of my best “finds” was Sandie Walters who created a simple website called “DCIS Without Rads.” Over the last two years, Sandie and I have shared many emails, phone calls and resources. Together we created DCIS Redefined: Dilemmas, Choices and Integrative Solutions. May this website be one of your great “finds” along your DCIS journey.
With great gratitude,
