A powerful blog by a brave teenager Lottie Wilson about the power of the word cancer. Even though cancer is now described as a chronic condition because more people are living with cancer than used to be the case ( 50% according to Cancer Research UK – and that varies for different cancers) , it still puts the fear of God in anyone who gets a diagnosis. It’s as if our brain can’t update its understanding of this chronic condition and yet many people live well beyond their cancer.
The psychological journey through and beyond a cancer diagnosis is profound and can linger long after the treatment has finished. This is where Cancer Coaching can really enable you to come to terms with what’s happened and find a way to live your life again every day.
