Hi, 
My mom was just diagnosed recently, in the last 2 weeks. We don't have any known history of breast cancer in our family (hard to tell bc my grandmother on her side was adopted). Finding the right specialist made a world of difference. My mom needed someone compassionate, who would hold her hand and make her laugh. Not just throw scary new information at her in a dead-pan voice. 

Find someone who you're comfortable fighting this with, because that shouldn't have to be a focus of yours. If you have questions, let me know. Always willing to talk.

Just wanted to welcome you both. No one ever wants to join this group but there are great people here. Hopefully we can help you with any questions you have and offer our support.  Hang in there. I know how scary and overwhelming it is at first but it DOES get a little easier along the way and you'll realize there IS life after a diagnosis. Hugs!
