With You, Right Through

Your guide to coping with cancer – before, during and after the treatment journey

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and
convenience, but where he stands at a time of challenge and controversy.”

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Remember that cancer does not define you – you can beat cancer by taking control and defining the way you live life with cancer. Treat every day that you challenge and survive cancer as a victory.

You face and conquer several challenges – medical, physical, or emotional. Different people embrace different coping mechanisms, and some ways of coping may be more successful in promoting your emotional well-being and psychological adjustment than others. Embrace the methodology that works best for you.
