This book explores the use of social support by Chamorro women diagnosed with breast cancer living on the island of Guahan (Guam) in Micronesia. More specifically, it presents how they use formal and informal sources of support to include the contributions of their nuclear and extended family networks. There is an absence of studies examining the plight of Chamorro women in their breast cancer survivorship. This book is an attempt at filing this gap. The stories shared by these women gives us a glimpse into the challenges of living with breast cancer and how activating one's available sources of social support can lead to resilience and recovery. This book is useful for those practicing in the realms of social work, human services, nursing, and other social service related fields; as well as for Chamorro women living with breast cancer.
