Nov/Dec 2018 – Celebration of Life

Live every day as if it is a festival. Turn your life into a celebration. – Shri Radhe Maa

This issue of Buddies For Life is a gift of celebrating our Super Survivors; our oncologists and our ability to triumph over triple-negative breast cancers. 

The stories told inspire and make one realise the tenacity of the spirit and body. While the navigation column helps you navigate this season safely. 

Please read Legal-ish and understand the difference between home-use and medicinal.

Learn about the types of chemotherapy; how we are In it together; and best of all, in the words of Brigham Young: “Love the giver more than the gift.” 

This season, give back with time; careful communication and most of all love.

Your Buddie for Life
