Surviving Breast Cancer

Dealing With Treatment and Life After Treatment

After receiving the initial diagnosis, many women are honed in on the things that lie ahead namely, procedures to detect the stage of breast cancer, and finding out what type of treatment they'll have to undergo, how long it will take and all of the emotional issues that come with a diagnosis. Once you've gone through this phase of your journey, it's important to look to what lies ahead for you.

The next step involves dealing with your treatment, and then moving into life as a survivor. Sometimes it helps to have a guide that points you towards important tools and resources.

Be Thankful at Anytime Not Just on Thanksgiving

When you're a breast cancer survivor, regardless of whether you're still in treatment, or you're tracking your cancer-free time, you have much more to be thankful for than most people. This experience may help you realize that small things are just as important as the big ones. Celebrate life by filling your house with fall flower arrangements.

Nutrition During Treatment and Beyond

Download the free nutrition guide from the American Cancer Society. The guide has useful information that will help you see the importance of proper nutrition throughout every phase of your journey. Even though chemotherapy may make you feel too nauseated to eat, eating may actually ease the symptoms of nausea. The guide is helpful for family members and caregivers so they have a better understanding of what you should or shouldn't eat.

Consider Taking an Online Nutrition Class

An online nutrition class can help you understand the importance of good nutrition during your treatment and advise you as to what supplements may help and which ones may be detrimental to your treatment.

Remember The Importance of Exercise

Physical activity is an important part of a comprehensive treatment and recovery plan. While you may not be physically able or psychologically inclined to do the sorts of strenuous workouts you previously did, you can still incorporate physical activity into your daily routine. A brief walk around the block will get you out of the house where you can get some fresh air, enjoy the seasons and get that physical activity without having to go to great lengths to do so.

Participate in National Breast Cancer Awareness Month Activities

If you're far along in your treatment or recovery, you may even want to consider participating in one of the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month walk events, bike rides or any of the many other events that raise awareness about breast cancer. These events raise money for research, treatment and more.

Connect With Other Survivors

Many breast cancer organizations have services that connect survivors who want to support one another. Sometimes it isn't possible to meet with people in person. Pink-Link.org created a social network specifically for breast cancer survivors. If you're ever feeling depressed, or need to get some encouragement, a breast cancer survivor's social media platform can make that possible at any time of the day or night.

The journey to recovery from breast cancer is a long and difficult one. No woman should have to endure it alone. The support of friends and family is important, but that isn't enough. Cancer organizations have loads of free information that is no further away than your fingertips. Don't deny yourself the opportunity to take advantage of any resource that can help you see the light at the end of the tunnel.
