Notes from a journal of a cancer free woman:
Today, exactly 10 years ago, I was diagnosed with breast cancer.
The little lump I touched 6 months earlier and which I fantasized was just a minor cyst, was apparently a completely different story.
After the lump was removed, I received the news that my type of cancer was a pleasant one. It was the hormonal cancer, and at the same breath, I was informed that I had to have another operation because the lymph was infected.
At that moment I made the decision that there are worse things in life and that there are more serious diseases and that No TUMOR WILL KNOCK ME DOWN!
I made another decision that suited me and it was that I’m not going to let the disease manage me, but I will manage it in a practical way with a great optimism and with the supportive family that I have.
To make the story short; after two surgeries and 38 annual screening tests and many more exams and treatments, I am here, living with joy and love.
It took me a few more years until the penny dropped and made me realize some very important things that have always been here and I took them for granted. And yes, the same pink clichés and mantras we all know and chant, have turned out to be true and important and are within a reach to us all.
* Get up every morning with a smile and joy for a new day full of activity.
* Make dreams come true, anything is possible if you just want to and do it.
* Do not take anything for granted, not even the smallest things.
* Love yourself, you are the most important asset to life.
* Always, always give support to others who need it.
* Proportions is the name of the game.
* Positive thinking is a key to many doors in life.
* Do not wait for illness or crisis to develop yourself and grow.
