In 2009, at age forty-four, I joined the statistics of one in eight women diagnosed with breast cancer each year. The medical team told me, “You’re healthy—with cancer.” Sort of funny, isn’t it?
This blog includes tips I found along the way on my journey. My intention in sharing is to lighten your load—whether you are the one diagnosed, or a caregiver.
I never refer to the individual experiencing cancer as a warrior, victim, or survivor. Nor do I refer to cancer as a fight, struggle, battle, or war. I urge the reader to stay in conscious gratitude for people, events and things in their life.
Many of the suggestions I’ll provide are universal for anyone needing help regardless of gender or diagnosis.
