The Reality of Cancer


Being told you have cancer can be devastating. Immediately it becomes a full-time job to find the right treatments and the right doctors. What about trying alternative medicine? Family and friends have scary stories, have all read articles or heard something somewhere about a cure. At the end of the day though? It's all you.

Dealing with the physical symptoms, the emotional toll and still trying to keep a job or be present for family members is a daunting task. Check out this video and see how cancer survivors dealt with their diagnoses. Have you survived cancer? What worked, what didn't work? In this new year, hopefully the best of health and happiness will come to us all.
