The chief complaint of cancer patients to their doctors is fatigue. In this world of technology, we have so much help with all from all sorts of machines. Dr. Ken Weizer shares with us his thoughts on the cause of fatigue in our lives – “the Terrible Toos.” (No, we are not talking about toddlers.) But Dr. Ken gives us his solution as well – ‘the Wonderful Ones.” What does he mean? Listen in to Dr. Ken’s discussion to find out.
“Our habits create our lives.” In the cancer dance, you have to make new habits – even if you don’t want to. In discussing creating good habits in his life, a patient told Dr. Ken Weizer, “It’s easy to say but hard to do.” Dr. Weizer had a different take on it. Listen as Dr. Weizer talks about how to help yourself do the good habits that you should do. A discussion that everyone can take something from, whether you have cancer or not.
Sedona, AZ – Though conventional medicine continues to make strides in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, the disease still carries the stigma of a “death sentence.” As a result of this fear, we perceive cancer as an “enemy” we must “battle” so we can be a “survivor.” But when we use this type of language, our mentality is already that of a victim; cancer is something that’s happening to us, a punishment.
In any war, one side may emerge victorious, but both sides suffer tremendous losses. The same is true when treating cancer: innocent healthy cells are caught up in the fray. So how can we reach a peaceful accord before the fight?
“This is not about a fight, or a battle or a war,” says Kelly Hansen. “My friends would say ‘You can beat this,’ but it’s not about defeating cancer, it’s about understanding cancer, understanding what you’re meant to do with it, not about it.”
Kelly is a two-time breast cancer survivor and the founder of Healing Cancer Now, a holistic coaching practice dedicated to inspiring and motivating individuals to perceive their disease as an opportunity for true healing and a catalyst for embracing a more meaningful life.
“Cancer offers us an opportunity to get back on track with the life we’re meant to be,” says Kelly. “You can look back and see the headaches, exhaustion and anxiety. There were signposts along the way. Cancer is not a punishment. It’s the result of you punishing yourself. Now it’s time to nurture yourself.”
Cancer is expensive. Period. Too often, you win the fight but lose everything thanks to crushing debt, medical bankruptcy, etc.. This is not OK and the folks at Give Forward (Ethan Austin, Co-Founder and Ariana Vargas, Director of Business Development) are doing something about it. Join us as we discuss our broken healthcare system, the ridiculously high cost of care and what people are doing about it. Survivor spotlight on blogger Sarah Dalzell.

Shamong, NJ – The experience of coping with a cancer diagnosis is often so profound, if you’re fortunate enough to make it to the other side, you can help almost anyone going through it. People are more comfortable talking to someone who has been through this experience and is still here.
Susan Mayer-McHugh made it to the other side of cancer, not once, but twice: she was first diagnosed with cervical cancer in 1983; some 20 years later, she would be diagnosed with cancer yet again, this time in her breast.
Today, Susan is a professional cancer coach the founder of Survive Cancer Coach, a coaching practice dedicated exclusively to helping patients and their families struggling with a cancer diagnosis and all that comes with it.
“I help my clients navigate this experience through the cancer maze with as much ease and grace and support as possible so they can survive the journey and thrive after treatment,” says Susan. “Having been through this experience myself, my clients are secure, loved, comfortable and supported.”
When initially diagnosed with cancer, there are so many emotions, issues, concerns and fears to deal with. The diagnosis affects a patient’s entire perception of the world. But Susan says her sessions are really no different than sitting across from a friend for a cup of coffee. She asks her clients about their diagnosis and their fears. If they’re local, Susan has been known to go on their first oncologist appointment and even their first chemo appointment.
Susan acts as a bridge between the diagnosis and treatment so the process can be immediately focused toward thinking about this experience in a positive way about healing.
“I don’t think there are any accidents in life,” says Susan. “I believe this is what I was meant to do.”
