“Talking about my cancer helped me to be in a better state of mind and to move on with my healing,” says Beryl Arries who is a 10 year cancer survivor
Lesley Collopy’s breast cancer was diagnosed on her son’s birthday, eight months ago.
“When you hear your doctor say it is cancer, your whole world implodes. Breast cancer is not just the lump. Not enough support is given to the husbands or children of people with breast cancer. And it is difficult because I don’t think they know how to react around you.”
After her cancer diagnosis Roselind Ludolph stayed in bed for ten days because she couldn’t cope with what the doctors had told her. Then, at 3.30am one morning, she heard her mother praying for her and she decided to stand up and face the future. As it turned out, her lump was very small and her breast was not removed. Now she says “that cancer wanted me to just stay in that bed. But I said NO! There is life and hope after cancer.”
Another great video from the ‘What’s Underneath Project’, this time from breast cancer warrior, Gail Chovan.
There may be a couple of words that would offend some of our readers, but we think that what she has to say is more important than a few harsh words.
