Just putting this out there

I recently came across the results of a survey about how women feel in the aftermath of their breast cancer treatment. Of those that responded:

  • 48% reported feeling low or depressed
  • 60% said they needed support to manage worries about recurrence
  • 39% felt isolated by the ongoing side effects of treatment
  • 61% felt those around them expect them to move on before they were ready.

I don’t know how scientific the survey was but, based on my own experience and the experiences of many of the women I’ve spoken to or come across, I’m surprised some of the figures aren’t higher.

Just putting this out there on this lovely sunny Spring morning.

  1. Good afternoon Maureen!
    Thank you very much for sharing these. They are very interesting.
    Do you have any source or link to the survey results? We would really like to dig deeper.

    Take care. And keep on running! 🙂
