Very dated

The forum discussions and questions are mostly from 6-7 years ago. Nothing recent. Disappointing for someone hoping to have other people to reach out to.

App not updated since 2013

Only first two learning videos work. The rest of the videos do not load. If you want to watch these videos close the app and go to their website.

Breast Cancer: Beyond the Shock

I am so glad this software is on the iPhone! When I was diagnosed with breast cancer, the Beyond The Shock program helped me understand the different types and stages of breast cancer. Armed with knowledge, I felt more empowered and better prepared to fight the breast cancer. The program has been completely rewritten and is even more user friendly than when I depended so heavily on it. You can find answers in it to many of the questions that you forgot to ask your surgeon or oncologist. If you know anyone effected by breast cancer, this is a good resource to recommend.
