Without a doubt, a cancer diagnosis can be daunting. Your mind fills up with questions about the diagnosis, the treatment options, what it will take to recover, how you can prevent a recurrence, and how to move forward. It’s a lot to think about, a lot to process, and a lot to handle. But you don’t need to do it all by yourself – a cancer advocate can help you through the process.
Cancer advocacy can mean different things, depending on the type of advocacy being practiced. At CALMERme, the focus is on using three pillars – lifestyle medicine, empowerment, and research to support individuals with cancer and for cancer prevention.
