Since its inception, LatinaSHARE has been working towards supporting, educating, and bringing awareness to underserved communities through providing educational programs, support groups, and literature in Spanish.

Moving Through Grief: Tips for Living with Metastatic Breast Cancer

Blogger Amy Schnitzler of amyhealthyself.com shares the story of her metastatic breast cancer diagnosis, her stages of grief, and how she combats the loneliness, sadness, and fear that comes with MBC. Follow her journey on her blog here!

I received my metastatic breast cancer diagnosis at 26 years old, on April 11th, 2016. I had just been accepted to my top 3 graduate school programs for Opera Performance and Classical voice the week before and was in the middle of trying to decide between them—all while attempting to process my beloved grandmother’s sudden death on March 30th, 2016. To say this time in my life was “full” is a monstrous understatement.
