The foremost advice that I can give to anyone battling this disease is "Please don't stick your head in a hole and let fear rule you!" Find out as much as you can about your type of cancer. Knowledge will help you make good decisions about your care; you must keep the dialogue open with your doctors and care givers. You have choices, and you must make the best decisions possible for your own good care. I have encountered too many patients that are scared and want to leave all the decisions to their doctors. A positive, fighting attitude is one of your best tools. You are worth all the effort that you can muster to get well. I could say many more things, but suffice it to say, "Don't check out" and "Keep in there pitchin'!"
I have several items in my shop (including the quilt pictured in my banner) that a portion of the proceeds goes to benefit BC patients and fund more research. I sometimes wear a cuff like the one above to bring awareness to the cause. I am blessed and want to bring awareness and encouragement.
