While the world still has to come to terms with An­gelina Jolie’s dou­ble mas­tec­tomy which the ac­tress un­der­went to re­duce the risk of breast can­cer, a study has emerged that claims women al­ready di­ag­nosed with breast can­cer are bet­ter able to deal with the pain and other phys­i­cal symp­toms of the dis­ease when sur­rounded by loving and pos­i­tive friends and fam­ily. The re­search re­vealed that women un­der­go­ing breast can­cer treat­ment who had the high­est lev­els of so­cial in­te­gra­tion showed the best over­all qual­ity of life

while those who had lit­tle or no pos­i­tive in­ter­ac­tion were three times more likely to suf­fer greater phys­i­cal symp­toms. So if some­one you know has been di­ag­nosed with breast can­cer then make sure you spread all the love and pos­i­tive en­ergy that you can when you’re around them.
