What do you do after surviving breast cancer?
Grace Gawler, a cancer strategist with 38 years of experience and more than 14,000 clients, and the author of one of the first books (Women of Silence: The Emotional Healing of Cancer) on the emotional and psychological impact of breast cancer
What I’ve found useful whenever I’ve had a consultation with Grace, is her blend of knowledge and experience of treatments and the psychology of cancer patients. She’s also someone who’s gone through a serious illness, so she knows just what it takes to weather the storms of a life-threatening illness. It is that level of empathy that makes her unique in her services and someone I feel I can talk to because she truly understands!
In this radio show, Grace talks about surviving survival.Two key areas she covers are: (1) the void that is created after the flurry of treatment stops and the gap between monitoring visits to the specialist doctor widens (2) the what-if phase after treatment … “what if the cancer recurs?”
With patients living longer, women often have impaired life quality and declining well-being after breast cancer. The wounds are often unseen. Surviving Survival is about the need to become an alchemist, transforming the threat of losing our life, to helping us find our life!
