Komen Foundation Awards Grants
One step is helping women understand what it is they're facing. Jeanne's grant focuses on an educational DVD where women who have had cancer help women who are just being diagnosed.
"The good thing ... is that even though these women have had breast cancer, you know, they're successful, they're doing well, they have a story to tell, and you can see that it's not always the devastating situation that sometimes cancer images create in your mind," Shellabarger said.
The DVDs will be available at public libraries in Boone County and at the Ellis Fischel Cancer Center.
