About The Unexpected Gift
At the age of 42, I was diagnosed with cancer. I was devastated, it was a diagnosis I never expected. There was no family history and I was young. Cancer changed my life, but it also gave me a gift.
There is so much more than just the diagnosis, the physical and emotional struggles that come with the disease. I understand what a person experiences because of cancer. The vulnerability and uncertainty of what the future holds is challenging. What should not be a struggle is finding the products you need and services that are supportive while going through cancer.
When I was in recovery, I joined organized support groups and it was there that I learned so much. By speaking with others going through similar experiences, I learned about products that would have been beneficial while going through treatment. It was the small things that would have made such a difference in my level of comfort, while having chemotherapy and radiation. Knowing a simple thing like getting your teeth cleaned before chemo started would have made all the difference to me. This is the knowledge, I want to provide to you. Now that I have experienced the diagnosis, the treatment and the recovery, I want to share my experiences with you – to help, to provide comfort and to give you confidence.
Cancer has changed my life, and has allowed me to realize what is authentically important. Family, friends and people are what life is about. Not all the chaos we get wrapped up in. Enjoying the moment and hearing the laughter make challenges easier to overcome.
That is the Gift.
