Let’s Stop Calling Metastatic Breast Cancer “Chronic”! | Nancy’s Point
— Read on nancyspoint.com/lets-stop-calling-metastatic-breast-cancer-chronic/
This is an important and well written post by my good friend and part of my virtual support network Nancy whose books are outstanding if you’re just diagnosed, if you’re deciding on reconstructive surgery, if you’re a carer (better word for care giver), or have any kind of cancer.
This post, although I’m quoted in it, has quotes from around the blogosphere by some of the most well respected writers you will find – not everyone but many. I consider these people my friends and like Nancy, an integral part of my support group. It’s hard enough being so isolated by those who you thought would always be here for you and disappear as though cancer were contagious. Afraid of mortality and of not knowing what to say to us, we forgive these who don’t understand the huge delta between chronic and terminal. Metastatic cancer is terminal. We will die. Inevitably. Read on and follow Nancy’spoint.com you’ll be happy you did.
