Get inspired!

Dear Friends,

Be The Choice was dreamed up a little more than five years ago. Thanks to supporters like you, we have grown into an incredible volunteer-driven, non-profit, award winning, resource that empowers patients to co-create their treatment options. Read more below!

What began as a tiny seed is now starting to sprout leaves. This year alone, more than 6000 people consulted the tool for about 3 minutes each, we have 580 Facebook followers, 265 Twitter followers, and over 1000 health care professionals were introduced to the tool. Exciting!

Thanks for helping us spread the word!  Happy holidays to all!

Robin Beasley: Seeds of the Trees

Many of my first appointments in the cancer world were just a blur. I would sit, terrified, in these sterile clinic rooms wanting something to focus on besides the fact that a doctor would come through the door at any moment and throw some scary words out there. Words like aggressive and invasive, radiation and reconstruction.
       
The breast cancer clinic had given me a giant binder of information – information that was divided into areas of medical practice, not the areas of experience that I was about to live through.

"Don't Stop." - Testimonial from a Decision Tree User!

"The fact that you two got together and decided to change the world is amazing...and make no mistake even as a man I know that you have changed the world for women with breast cancer. Your passions will/have feed each other, and the people you both affect with this project will continue to grow both in quantity and in distance.

Medicine tends to be clinical, cancer scary as hell. What you guys have done is give someone a chance to take a moment; a breather; and in a non-sterile way say stop, look, read about options, talk to those you love, ask your doctor questions and fight this battle your way."

Congrats to you both. Don't Stop.
