Breast Cancer: Beyond the Shock

Jo Ann - survivor since 2008

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.

Great app, fix keyboard


App has been useful and helpful through my battle. The annoying hung is that where the "return" button is normally on iPhone is actually the "done" button, so either I hit it twice trying to start a new paragraph and send my unfinished message twice or hit it accidentally and send my message when I was trying to type an "m". There is a button for "post" at the top which is the perfect place. Please fix the other so that it is the "return" button rather than the done/post button

Love it


This app is so informative and helpful. Slick design. What a great idea - My grandmother died 12 years ago from breast cancer, and unfortunately, when she was fighting it, no one in my family had any knowledge of what was going on, or how to support her well... A resource like this isn't just helpful for survivors and those battling breast cancer... It's also helpful for the family members too. Powerful. Wish I had this 12 years ago.
