Those two words put you in a tribe nobody ever wanted to join. You want to hide it, forget about it, get away as fast as you can. Believe me, I understand. I've survived ovarian cancer three times, and it took until Round 3 for me to realize: Cancer is much more than an illness.
CANCER IS A LIFE SHIFT EXPERIENCE.
Cancer is profound. It's not just medical. It's not something you get over with chemo and radiation. Cancer also happens at the level of your soul. It gives you an opportunity to start new.
People who haven't been through cancer don't like to think what it means. They're sure it's a punishment. They'll actually try to tell you that you caused your cancer or even secretly wanted it to happen. That's just dumb. Also it's insulting. In fact, a blaming message is what started me on the work I do today.
PEOPLE CAN BE WORSE THAN CHEMO! A TRUE STORY
I was at a dinner party near my home in Los Angeles. Right across the table was a charming, well-dressed woman I'd never met before. Somebody mentioned I was having cancer treatment. This woman smiled at me and said,
"Thank heaven I don't store my anger! Would you pass the salmon?"
I always thank this woman now, because without her, I'd have run away from my cancer experience just like everybody else. Instead, I thought: This cancer voyage is my adventure. It's not an end. It's a beginning.
My life is different now. I'm not clueless anymore. This adventure is teaching me not just how I want to live, but why to live!
YOU CAN BE GREATER AFTER CANCER.
That's how my journey began. I created the Well Again Path™, a simple, step-by-step journey of unfoldment that helps us discover together how this passage of cancer diagnosis and treatment can inspire you to a less fearful, more rewarding path for your whole life, not just a season.
THE WELL AGAIN PATH™ IS ALL ABOUT DISCOVERING YOU.
People who are afraid of cancer love to tell you what to do. There's so much misinformation, so much fear, all coming in your direction.
The fact is, cancer uncovers your greatness. We who've been there, know that. It gives us a new perspective, a new willingness to grow. As a dear friend and fellow cancer veteran told me: "Life begins at cancer!"
You deserve to be proud. You deserve to be fierce. You deserve to be Well Again.
