Cancer Tamer provides Education, Supportive Services, and Life-Enriching Activities for women with cancer to help them stop merely surviving and start THRIVING
We are a new way of looking and living with cancer…because we should not be at war with our bodies!
For years the medical community has taught us that cancer is the enemy, that we should eradicate it, that it’s something we must try to survive and overcome. Fear was spoon feed to us in every word, advertisement, and discussion until the word cancer equated death and our bodies became the enemy.
The medical community treats women like cattle–mastectomies are now “an afternoon procedure” where they send you home after removing your breasts and performing reconstruction. And cancer organizations want you to rise up and be a “warrior” and battle this disease; overlooking the fact that cancer is within us! It’s part of our body’s, our cells, our very existence. There has to be a better way!
Instead of being at war with our bodies, we need to find a way to co-exist with cancer and the possibility of its recurrence. If we constantly order ourselves to, “do battle, to destroy cancer, to overcome, to wipe out, to cut off parts of ourselves, etc.,” then we create a battlefield we cannot possibly win. Our body will battle against itself as it listens to our subconscious dictates for destruction–destruction of itself!
We’ve forgotten that cancer is not an “outside force invading” our blood stream and our bodies, but an “INSIDE FORCE”–a part of ourselves–residing within and in some instances, doing so quietly. If we raise the battle cry to destroy it, we also–in the process–destroy a part of ourselves and in some cases cause our own death.
Let’s STOP battling our bodies and instead begin to educate ourselves and find healthier more productive ways to life with cancer and it’s possible recurrence. Through education, eating healthier, rest, exercises, and yes, medical treatment when necessary, we can live a healthy happy prosperous life alongside and despite our cancer.
