When one is diagnosed with cancer, the world suddenly changes. The calendar becomes filled with doctors’ appointments, blood work appointments, procedure appointments, more doctors’ appointments, more confusion. Through all these appointments, you begin to lose sight of yourself as a person, and now feel as though you are a ‘cancer patient.’ A cancer patient, who is fighting, winning and living! Living, how am I supposed to do this, you may think?! Really, living, I have cancer….
Living is simple. You breathe air, your heart beats, you fuel your body, you take your medications and mind continues to function. But, living with cancer is more than just living. Living with cancer is being a SURVIVOR. A survivor who has a new perception of living!
