Having kindled an online friendship based on information-sharing and supporting one another around our experiences with DCIS, in June of 2012, we joined forces to create DCIS Redefined ~ Dilemmas, Choices & Integrative Solutions, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping women world-wide faced with a DCIS diagnosis.
Our mission is to support and empower women in making informed decisions individualized to their particular DCIS diagnosis. Our vision is for all women to understand the full scope and spectrum of DCIS and to feel supported in their decisions for screening, treating, monitoring, and preventing DCIS recurrence and progression.
We look forward to hearing about YOUR experiences, sharing resources and being a support for one another.
For more information about my personal experiences with DCIS:
Blessings of peace, love and health,
With gratitude and in memory of Sandie Walters
Sadly Sandie was diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in her opposite breast and after a mastectomy she was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer in 2015. Sandie sadly passed away in January 2018 from pneumonia.
Sandie is the inspiration for a scholarship fund for people facing cancer who do not have the awareness or financial means for life-enhancing wellness activities, products or educational programs. Learn more about the inspiration and mission of Give Wellness at www.giveWELLNESS.life
Ladies, so excited to see you joining forces. I’ve followed both your blogs (though I have yet to participate on either). My DCIS journey has just begun, and your stories helped bring the confidence and courage to create my own “standard of care” thus far. Looking forward to great things here!
Blessings of peace, love and health to you too!
Getting started on this journey (like having dealt with invasive ductal carcinoma wasn’t enough). Thank you for sharing your experiences and the resources you’ve found in the path to recovering your health.
Love and blessings 🙂

Thank you Donna for meeting with me and Theo the other day. I found your blog just by chance and I’m so thankful I did, if I hadn’t who knows where I would be? I’ve been in contact with Dr. Lagios and I’m waiting for him to give me a second opinion. Thank you, thank you for all your hard work on getting this ever so important information out to women. The resources are invaluable.
Here is a link to my blog
Thanks Kim…it was great to meet you and Theo in person. You will be in the best of hands with Dr. Lagios regarding knowing for sure what the pathology truly is. Feel free to contact me with any further questions or for support or guidance. Many loved ones mean well, but they often don’t understand…and most of their “concerns” are out of fear. Great that you have a smart, educated husband! Please read the book “You Did What, Saying NO to Conventional Cancer Treatment.” And be sure to read everything on Chris Wark’s blog. http://www.chrisbeatcancer.com Thanks for posting your blog link and sharing ALL of your experience and feelings. The pink lollipop perfectly illustrates the absurdity of what’s wrong with the cancer industry! Be well and please keep in touch! xo, Donna
Thank you for founding this site!
