CANCER is just a word, not a sentence. (Thank you for this wonderful reminder Dr. Silberstein)
As shocked as you feel, when you hear this word , about yourself or someone you love, I want you to know that you don't have to be afraid. You don't have to "react" in fear. Take time to understand your diagnosis, to get the information you need to make the best treatment decision for you. I understand how doctors can make you feel you need to start treatment "right now". The truth is, unless your cancer is causing a life-threatening situation, ( can't breathe, void urine or your body is shutting down in some way) you have time to think things over.
No matter why you have heard the word, believe me, you have come to the right place.
Whenever you or even someone you know, gets a diagnosis of cancer, you need HOPE. You want answers, you want to know what to do, to get back in control of your life, you want the support, or to know how to support someone you love. You need to be able to express yourself, to feel that life will be worth living again, that you are cared about and you want a feeling that you are not facing this alone.
Do you need someone that will give you HOPE instead of fear? A place to get questions answered, to hear your fears and frustrations and to help you through it. Even if it's so you can help someone else. I have put some absolutely wonderful information here on this page for you. The buttons on this page will lead you to other organizations that educate you on cancer. They also are trying to get the word out to everyone so that treating the disease will not cause more harm than good. That those who suffer from conditions that look HOPELESS are going to NOT GIVE UP!
But this is just one of the things I have to offer you. Personal one on one counseling is available. Being a nurse I understand the medical world and how it Impacts your treatment, being a certified holistic health nurse has given me alternative perspectives on health that can be used in conjunction with conventional treatments or by itself to help support your recovery plan. It gives you the best of both worlds.
No matter what stage of the information gathering process you are at I encourage you to reach out to me immediately so that we can connect and I can give you the emotional support and information that you will need to so that you don't have to be alone or afraid anymore.
If you or someone you love is at risk for cancer, has been diagnosed, treated or in just the beginning of the whirlwind of searching for answers of any kind...you are in the right place. There are basic things you want to know right now. Don't be afraid to find out that your life is not over.
What you need to know is that HOPE HEALS!
