LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

Dear Friends

How much more succinct can you get than saying, “Cancer sucks”? Because it does. I am sure all of us know someone who has been affected by a cancer diagnosis – a parent, a child, a friend, even your own self. The very word strikes fear in the hearts of both the patient and his or her loved ones. The thought of enduring chemotherapy or radiation

can be devastating. When a cure for cancer in all its forms is found, there will certainly be worldwide rejoicing. In the meantime, we must believe there is still hope. With all the medical innovations being made at a rapid pace these days, cancer doesn’t always have to be viewed as an inevitable death sentence. In this issue, you will read about preventive and treatment vaccines now available for cancer. Dr. John Patterson offers resources to help you cope with your cancer – to see yourself, he emphasizes, not as a cancer patient but as a human being whose life has been touched by cancer. And women who have lost their hair while undergoing chemotherapy will find their dignity and beauty at a local business that specializes in hair restoration. Don’t give up hope. Remember more and more people are surviving cancer these days – and you can be one of them.

 Here’s to your wellness,

Tanya
