Surviving Cancer

31 Mar

This is a great post from Livestrong – a video of Genae Girard, a breast cancer survivor on the various stages and coping mechanisms post-cancer.

When I look back at my cancer journey, it is very clear to me that the most difficult stages are the beginning (diagnosis) and the recovery (after treatment). Although there is not much emphasis on post-treatment care, I feel that it is imperative that every patient is duly prepared by the medical team about the challenges post-treatment, both physically and mentally. Being mentally prepared for the new normal will make the transition back to life a lot easier and less stressful.
