Begin Here: Cancer Resource Websites and Links

While I have offered my Patti-ized version of breast cancer advice, this post is a pure resource page for those who have no idea where to get start gathering solid info about cancer. Some links are specific to breast cancer and others cover the wider topic of cancer.

I pray you never need this list, and while not exhaustive, it will get you started.
