“Cancer is a word, not a sentence.”
– John Diamon
Picture life as an eloquently written novel, rich with adventures, joy, and challenges. Suddenly, you stumble upon a challenging word: cancer. It's a word that can feel like a full stop, a blockage in your narrative, causing fear, confusion, and uncertainty. Yet, remember that cancer is just a word, not a sentence. It's a hurdle, not the end of your story.
Now, imagine an editor, someone who helps you understand that challenging word, work through it, and keep the story flowing. This is what it feels like when you begin to manage the stress component of cancer. The fears, the worries, the physical and emotional side-effects of treatment start to become manageable parts of your narrative, rather than insurmountable obstacles.
