Being diagnosed with breast cancer can be a life changing experience for many women and their families. Sisters Network® Inc. developed this guide to help recently diagnosed breast cancer patients ask their doctors important questions following their diagnosis. During this time, it is important that you gather as much information as possible, AND keep a copy of your medical records!

Tips to make your visit a success:

Ask a family member or a Sister Network® member to accompany you for support and also to listen to the information.

Don’t be afraid to tell your physician you don’t understand information he/she has shared with you regarding your treatment options.
