PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - Breast cancer is a devastating diagnosis, both physically and mentally, but once a woman gets past the initial shock, it can be very easy to overcome it if you get help.

Now, in the past reports we’ve talked about the fact that many women can be given opportunities to have breast reconstruction or other procedures, but the other thing that’s very important is to understand that with stress comes a great deal of pressure.

When women have this kind of pressure, and when they have the depression also associated with it, they need to have guidance and someone to communicate with.

Communication may be more important than anything when it comes to cancer.
