Week #217 – My Message To The Newly Diagnosed, There’s Always Hope

Hey friends,
This past week, a co-worker reached out for help. I could immediately sense their feelings of overwhelming despair, panic and fear. They’d just gotten word of their cancer diagnosis. My own experience – 217 weeks ago – with those very first hours and days on cancer mountain came right back to me. I remember, at first, feeling like all I could see was darkness and then slowly – very slowly – lights started to come up around the many people and resource groups ready and willing to help me. My co-worker’s ask and plight got me thinking about the best ways I can share some of my experience and positive reassurance with anyone that’s just landed on the nasty hill with us. This note below is a good start. And please, by all means, feel free to share it with anyone you know that needs a helping hand:

I am a Stage IV cancer survivor with a very hopeful and amazing story. Surgery, chemo, radiation … I’ve have been through it all during 44+ months of treatment. Now, I am a UCSF clinical trial patient loaded with “Terminator” T-cells which may provide a major breakthrough for colorectal, colon, liver, lung, and head & neck cancers. Amazing things are always possible!
