So You Have Been Diagnosed with Cancer
Hearing your doctor say, “You have cancer” is undoubtedly one of the most dreaded sentences one can hear. Mind, body and spirit may feel frozen in time. Stories of people with cancer flash through your mind-most of them bad.
Cancer is often referred to as a disease where “The cure can be worse than the disease.” Did you know that 40 percent of chemotherapy patients reported side effects as their biggest concern compared to 32 percent who thought surviving cancer was their biggest concern.(1)
The days and weeks following diagnosis can be a whirlwind of advice from physicians, family and friends. Your first impulse may be to ask “What are my options?” Your second impulse may be to just do what your doctor tells you, following the advice without exploring or considering other options.
Do Your Research & Know Your Options
Choosing your cancer treatment may be one of the most difficult and important decisions you’ll ever make. This is your life and your choice so investigate, research and learn your options.
