What Is Love to You?

February 14 is Valentine’s Day, so we thought we’d take a moment to acknowledge how our Community defines love. Whether you’re in a relationship or not, love can mean many different things to you. Maybe love to you is the unconditional affection from a pet. Maybe your grandchild’s smile is your definition of love. Perhaps a friend’s offer to help drive you to treatment is what love means to you. Or, taking a moment to meditate, exercise, read a book, or enjoy a favorite meal you’ve made yourself is how you take time to love yourself.

So, we want to know – how do you define love? Post on the What is Love thread and let us know >>


Featured Forums:

Sex & Relationship Matters >>
A place to talk candidly with other members about how your sex life and relationships have changed during and after a breast cancer diagnosis and treatment.

Singles With Breast Cancer >>

Members Share Tips to Get Your Mojo Back

Our Mojo thread members have compiled a very helpful list of tips to help get your mojo back after a breast cancer diagnosis. Tips include ways to spice things up in the bedroom, vaginal moisturizers and lubricants, sex toys, and sensual touch. We’ve written a blog post to incorporate all of these suggestions.
