    Messages to Cancer Survivors

    in Health

    Joyce will be speaking at the Kidney Cancer Survivors' Meeting at Dana Farber/Harvard Cancer Center on Friday, March 14.


    Mike Lawing and Billy Foster, long-time survivors of kidney cancer, join her to talk about what they would say to a room full of cancer survivors.


    Cancer is never "one and done" -- there is always the threat of recurrence, and the emotions generated by an encounter with cancer can be profound.  Mike and Billy have learned lessons for keeping themselves on an even keel and their cancers at bay for nearly two decades each.


    Come join us for the conversation.

    Cancer Survivors

    in Christianity

    Going through cancer treatment requires a lot of strength—physical, emotional, and mental. To stay strong, it’s important to have caregivers, both family and healthcare professionals, who continue to see you as a whole person, rather than focusing solely on the disease. I found that kind of care at Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA).


    After feeling a sharp pain in my breast one night, I made an appointment to see my primary care physician in my home town of Las Vegas, Nevada. She referred me to a breast specialist in the same building. Two weeks later, a sonogram indicated that I had breast cancer, and a subsequent biopsy confirmed the diagnosis. The disease was at stage II, and my doctor recommended surgery. However, I was troubled because I was not presented with options and I was not ready to rush into a decision. I also saw an oncologist who told me to have a port placed in preparation for chemotherapy, which was not something I’d discussed with the first specialist.


    Today, I am a member of the patient support network Cancer Fighters, and I try to meet individually with patients from time to time. It is so important to stay positive. Cancer is your personal fight, and you want to win that fight. That means never giving up, and staying close with your family. At CTCA, the healthcare professionals and entire staff are like family.


    God always have a way to help his people. Let's continue to trust God at everything.

    Yoga for Cancer - By: Tari Prinster

    in Spirituality

    Tari Prinster is a cancer survivor, yoga teacher and author. She is the Founder of Yoga4Cancer, LLC (y4c) and the Retreat Project (nonprofit) – businesses that are bringing specialized yoga cancer survivors through classes & retreats.  Also she leads a robust teacher training program to help enable yoga teachers to best adapt all styles to fit the unique needs of cancer patients & survivors.


    In Tari’s own words, she recounts her background with yoga and cancer: ‘When I was fifty, I started a yoga practice on a hunch it would ease menopausal symptoms. It did! That was sixteen years ago. Today, I am an example that it is never too late to start, never too late to change. Yoga made me feel younger and stand straighter. I sleep better, my weight is good, and my bones are strong.


    I found yoga a powerful tool to manage the daily challenges of cancer treatments as well as the side effects and life-long vulnerabilities they create. I discovered yoga was more than a way to stay healthy. It gave me emotional support and spiritual comfort so needed during recovery.


    I was curious why yoga was doing so much for me. My research made it clear why yoga strengthens the immune system, thus providing, among other things, protection against a cancer reoccurrence.

    Kathy Fieler: Helping Cancer Survivors Find Strength

    in Current Events

    What do you do when life deals you a devastating blow that highlights your immortality? Our guest is Kathy Fieler.


    Kathy Fieler, Cancer Survivor


    Kathy is a two-time breast cancer survivor who was working as a personal trainer, helping other cancer survivors, when stricken the first time. Disbelief and a feeling of betrayal led her through the five stages of grief pretty quickly: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance.


    And when reaching the end of that journey she decided to follow her personal mantra: "Today, make someone smile. Make a difference. Make someone think of you for the rest of their life." So she continued helping and inspiring survivors of cancer and other illnesses, as well as other people, to regain their physical strength and find their inner fortitude.
