Weekly Discussion Summary ~ How to Live with Cancer

Autumn has well and truly arrived and the longer evenings offer the chance for greater reflection. In this week's discussion, we explored 'how to live' with cancer and the effects of cancer.

Our discussion was inclusive of primary and secondary breast cancer, we are very aware of the different implications of each diagnosis, but also how important it is to learn about secondary breast cancer and consider it on a continuum to primary breast cancer.

We take our vulnerability forward, whether we are trying to move on after treatment for primary breast cancer, trying to come to terms with the limitations that face us as a result of our treatment, or when cancer returns and we are on continuous treatment. This was an opportunity to talk to one another about our concerns and the fears that affect us all, and to learn from one another.
