A saving grace to me in dealing with cancer is that I’ve been very public about my battle. My job, my friends, my family, and my global Facebook family knows the deal. So if and when I don’t feel well, I miss days or weeks of work, I lose my hair, etc, I really don’t have to explain myself to anyone. In fact, being public about my bout has gotten me generous support that I might not o...therwise have had if I remained quiet and/or reclusive.
Healing for me is all in my approach to dealing with cancer; I can either curse it or embrace everything. Chemotherapy is helping kill the cancer cells, but my creativity is helping me to cope and rise above fear and uncertainty.
Chemotherapy treatment #7 tomorrow—I’m at the halfway point to ridding myself of this dis-ease!
