This is not a breast cancer blog.
And yet, once you’ve been through something like breast cancer, it’s hard for it not to color your outlook on life. So, in a sense, everything I write about is informed by the fact that I fought cancer.
That said, there are some resources that I think will be especially helpful for my sister survivors. I’ve collected them here so that you have easy access to them all on one page.
Wherever you are on your journey, I’m sending loads of love, a ‘you got this’, and a giant FUCK CANCER.
Here’s a collection of my best tips for the newly diagnosed and those that love them.
- What to Do When You’re Diagnosed with Breast Cancer
- How to Help When Someone You Love Has Breast Cancer (forward this to anyone who says, “Do you need anything?)
- Got Cancer? Get Organized. Here’s How to Make Your Medical Binder
- Here’s How To Prepare When You Need To Have Surgery
- How to Play with Your Kids While You’re Lying Down (for my fellow cancer mamas)
Tips to help with the mental battle
Fighting cancer is as much a mental game as it is a physical one. Here are some posts I wrote about getting your head in the right place.
- What I Wish I Could Have Told Myself on the Worst Day of My Life (a pep talk and giant virtual hug)
- 9 Surprising Benefits of Gratitude and How to Get Them (I started practicing gratitude when I was sick. It changed everything.)
- Winter is Coming: How to Thrive in Each of the Seasons of Life
I created the You Can Cancer Planner to be the resource I wished I had to keep all my medical information straight when I was undergoing cancer treatment. Click here to learn all about it, and enter the coupon code SISTERSURVIVOR to get 20% off.
Breast Cancer Treatment is Overwhelming
Organizing all of your medical information shouldn’t be.
The You Can Cancer Planner was created by a survivor, for survivors.
