Cancer Awakens Newsletter - Aug 2018

Message from Vijay

A hospital is no place to be sick” (Samuel Goldwyn) and “How many desolate people have learnt the simple dues of fellowship and social comfort, in a hospital” (Elizabeth Barrett Browning). These 2 quotes are on opposite ends of how most people experience hospitalisation. The unpleasant reality of cancer is that you will be in and out of hospitals a lot!. This month, thriver Ameena Meer shares some powerful insights on how you can “survive hospitalisation” as she calls it. And once the hospital ordeal is behind you, how do you deal with an uncertain future? Cancer-Coaching can help. We also profile some of our trained SHERPAs, who can help you navigate the daunting journey. Please comment and share as you always do. Warmly, Vijay.
