SURVIVAL BEYOND CANCER
It may be that the most confusing words to hear other than a cancer diagnosis is when your doctor says “You’re cancer free – come back in a year!”
The months that follow a cancer diagnosis are possibly the most trying and stressful period in an individual’s life. There are decisions to be made, doctor’s protocols to be followed and every morning you wake up with a purpose to do something – anything that will help you beat the cancer & survive. You have a team of doctors and professionals, family and friends that rally with you and help you get through that day, day after day, till when you are declared “cancer free”. Many feel that for all they have been through with the treatment, it is time to kick up their heels and celebrate. They fall back into the same old habits and lifestyle that they lived by before the diagnosis. Life takes over for everyone – the doctor’s attention moves on to the next patient, the family and friends get back to focus on their own personal life and suddenly you find yourself alone and scared. Your mornings are empty without a purpose and you fear recurrence of the wretched cancer. This, to me, is the time when you need maximum support to keep you on a path of complete healing and whole body wellness. Your survival depends on you now.
Join us at Immersion Health in a series of cancer survivorship talks and learn how to support your body to recover and regain your health.
