When are you DONE with cancer?
You survive cancer surgery, chemo and radiation. Are you done with cancer?
No. You still have endless follow-up appointments with your long list of new doctors....oncologists, neurologists, internists, cardiologists, gastroenterologists, dermatologists....
You finish years of chemo drugs. Are you done with cancer?
No. You still have to deal with all the side effects of the drugs--neuropathy, weight gain, depression, heart issues, gastro troubles, lymphedema...
Your friend is diagnosed with cancer. Are you done with cancer?
Maybe. The focus is no longer on your own illness. Now you build on your inner strength as a survivor to help your friend.
What can you do to be done with cancer?
Do the things you love with the people you love. Help others.
Lose yourself in creative sessions!
Thank God every day for all your blessings.
