Managing the Cancer Fight
I didn’t stop to consider what really constitutes a “must-have,” though, until Allison mentioned her “cancer accessories.” ”Cancer Accessories” could easily be the name of an edgy new punk band, but in Allison’s case, and in the case of so many others that we all have in our lives, these are the things that make fighting cancer, and the endless trips to doctors’ offices and waiting rooms, endurable. These are the necessities that make the overwhelming flow of information more understandable; the must-haves that are truly indispensable.
The impact of a cancer diagnosis changes everything for the cancer fighter and everyone around them. Management of time and information is essential. Everyone involved has a somewhat daunting new job so the best approach is to take a deep breath and then make a plan.
