Over the weekend, I wrote two stories about breast cancer, one about a family that has seen three breast cancer diagnoses, and another about three women and how they chose where to get treatment.

On Tuesday at 4 p.m., we will host a Google Hangout with a few breast cancer survivors from Oklahoma. You will be able to ask them questions about their personal stories and learn more about how to help yourself or your family members or friends push through a diagnosis.

We will answer questions from you and discuss the lessons these women learned from their cancer diagnoses.

You can join this thoughtful discussion by visiting our NewsOK Live page on Tuesday,  Oct. 29, at 4 p.m.
