Cancer Tamer

Cancer may change your body, your looks, and shatter your self-confidence
BUT, it doesn’t define who you are!

Have just been diagnosed with cancer?

You will be frightened and scared.
You will be bombarded by people telling you to “fight” and destroy it.
Yet, they don’t realize that cancer is not an “outside force invading,” it is an “inside force residing.”
Cancer can be in our blood, our breasts, our DNA and when we attempt to destroy it, we inadvertently destroy a part of ourselves along the way. We have to find a better way to deal with cancer because we should not be at war with our body.


Peace can not be kept by force only by understanding”

Albert Einstein

STOP the war against our bodies

We can all be that beautiful mermaid no matter what breast cancer throws at us.
Let’s STOP the war against our bodies. It's a battle we can never win.
Instead, let's educate ourselves and find healthier ways to live with cancer and the fear of its possible recurrence.


How do you tame cancer when it seems impossible?

Through:●  education●  eating healthier●  rest●  exercises/body movement●  lifestyle changes●  body love and awareness● medical treatment when necessary      (traditional and holistic)
We can live a healthy happy prosperous life alongside–and despite–our cancer diagnosis.


When cancer knocks on your door, invite it in for tea. Then remind it and yourself that you’re in charge and you’re willing and able to kickass when necessary!
