Surviving Cancer My Way.
I remember the day so clear even after so many years have passed. March 8, 1999.
May this blog help you or a friend through your cancer journey. May it give you trust in the outcome, and the process. It can be done.
Flashback! Wow, a trip I did not expect but the way I dealt with it was totally “my way”. May not have been right, and certainly not everyone would agree with my chosen path, but I am here today to let you know, you can survive.
Long story short, saw my Dr. was referred to surgeon on Friday. Monday morning, I received a call to come to the office. I didn’t feel concerned, but when I saw the doctors face in the exam room, I knew something wasn't good. I was told that I had third stage breast cancer. My first reaction was Oh F**k and then life changed.
From here, an unfolding story, and 14 days after my first treatment I was in the shower and ended up holding my hair in my hands and watch it go down the drain. I stood there and cried but I guess that's normal, so I decided to make a magic shower. Again, this was my way in which my shower had magic diamond water that cut cancer from my body. As I showered, I would wipe my arms, body and legs and flushed the cancer down the drain. At times, I felt so many emotions I now wonder how I got through it all.
I did not go by the books; I did not read all the literature on things that could go wrong during treatment. I had my port-a-cath put in while I was awake and then proceeded to have my first chemo treatment. I met two other amazing people in treatment and we always sat together during our visits. We each knew we would get through this, and we did.
Happenings & Obstacles Along the Way:
My Oncologist told me it was my mindset that helped me survived. How we perceive an illness is half the battle. There is much more to this story but really the point is it's how we look at life, our perception of how we deal with it. My Way, is not for everyone, but it was how I personally dealt with it and how I survived to help other people get through their dance with cancer.
I now offer a small 1:1 Virtual program called “I CAN & I WILL”, that gives my client emotional support during or after their treatments. They are individual to each clients needs.
