It typically takes 7-10 years for cells to become mutated enough to be diagnosed as cancerous.  Based on Western Medicine standards, this classifies it as a Chronic Condition.  So, why the big rush, fear, and fatalism associated with cancer?  Simply, it's because we're habituated into this response.  If you simply look at the cancer industry size, it's a VERY profitable business model.  Fear sells in medical.  Cancer is not a death sentence.  It's the result of stress, internal congestion, poor metabolism, anemic conditions, hormonal instabilities, etc. Let us together reclassify this all too common problem, as it has left the realm of "I have a friend whose mom died of cancer", to "My sister, my friend, and 2 grandparents all had cancer."   Additionally, we want you to know how to navigate the emotional roller coaster this journey is, giving you the skills to handle it gracefully, without entering crisis mode.  However you choose to heal, if you or someone you love is experiencing cancer, let's get some tools together for the journey.  Take your time and allow it to unfold.  You may be surprised at the talents you have uncovered once it is all over.
