In addition to all of the wonderful pink products available this month (some of which we’ve recently featured in Joy of Shopping), here is a really great resource for families grappling with breast cancer. Breast Cancer: The Path of Wellness & Healing is an informative and uplifting DVD that educates and supports women with breast cancer, along with their friends, family and loved ones. —

In this two-part series, medical experts and cancer survivors give in-depth interviews on their personal and professional experiences. Some of the country’s most notable physicians and wellness specialists provide insights into risk, detection, diagnosis and treatment, while cancer survivors and activists lend their own testimonials. Contributors include Christina Applegate, Rosanna Arquette, Dr. Deepak Chopra, Sheryl Crow, Melissa Etheridge, Dr. Harvey Karp, Dr. Soram Khalsa, Dr. Susan Love, Olivia Newton-John, Dr. Marisa Weiss and more.

Created by two-time breast cancer survivor Joyce Ostin and bestselling DVD director/producer Nina Montée Karp, the Breast Cancer DVDs combine wisdom from traditional and complementary medicine along with practical advice for navigating the day-to-day struggles. From how to create the best medical team to help your cause, to talking about breast cancer with your children, this DVD set is an invaluable tool for managing the physical, emotional and psychological aspects of living with cancer. 

Considering about 1 in every 8 women is diagnosed with invasive breast cancer at some time in their lives, the importance of such a resource as this cannot be overstated. Watch the DVDs for your mothers, your sisters, your aunts and your friends. But, most importantly, watch it for yourself.

Take care.
