Did you ever think you would manage? What about thrive in the face of learned resilience? What about take your strengths to the next level? Yet the fallout of cancer is haunting. This is the next chapter.
It is not a "new you" and you don't "get over it". You manage and every day is an attitude that radiates through broken bones and arthritis, fatigue and pain that are just some of these symptoms after cancer treatment.
Imagine being an advocate for all that? To tell the world that it is not all pink heroics; that there is an unspoken side to cancer survivorship - a fallout that many don't speak about limited by cultural and professional health care barriers. Astounding stats started my presentations to address areas of sexuality, breast reconstruction and long term side effects but realized we must go straight to the people.
Who better to do this than Look Good Feel Better who are bringing back the womanhood to women in cancer.
Both Sides Connects will ask specialists these questions, direct to the patient to bridge the gap on-line. Stay tuned.

Cancer hits you blindside when all the balls are in the air - delete all. Bilateral breast cancers, double mastectomy, reconstruction, BRCA 1 mutation, hysterectomy and family risk. The fallout is exhausting. Through these scars we somehow find strength and an appreciation of life. Now, leading change in Cancer Care I can make a difference everyday from Both Sides.
