Breast Cancer Victory- Did You Just Say “Breast Cancer”?: "I will be using this journal to tell my story, to share the adventure with all of you, in hopes that my story will perhaps help someone else who may be struggling with this as well. I decided to deliver my story in real time, as it happens, in this journal. This is my therapy, and my way of sharing the story in its raw, unedited form. It is my hope that other people who encounter difficulties can read this and gain strength from knowing that they are not alone. It isn’t just for breast cancer survivors, and it isn’t just for women either. It’s a story of one woman’s experiences with life’s hurdles, and how ordinary people can become extraordinary heroes in just a few brief moments when life brings unexpected change. If you’re wondering, when I say hero, I’m not talking about me. I’m talking about the people in my life who are my heroes. I’m also predicting that there will be many surprise heroes along the way, people who seem to come out of the woodwork when they are most needed. People who would never call themselves heroes, but they are, nonetheless. This is the story of how my life changed in one instant, and how I am going to make this new life better than it was before… " This is a brave attempt - and full marks to Sylvie for doing this. By helping others, she is helping herself - and there is a lot of evidence to show that patients who are "fighters" do better than those who are passive and give in. I'll be rooting for you Sylvie - best of luck !
