Overcoming Cancer - Love, Loss, and Triumph
Affecting millions of individuals around the world every year, cancer changes the lives of families, communities, and individuals in an instant. While the effects of being diagnosed, or having a loved one diagnosed, with cancer are tremendous, resilience of the human spirit combined with the support of family and friends can inspire us to persevere and beat cancer both physically and emotionally.
Cancer causes us to reassess our priorities and reshape our thinking. Though the power of loss is difficult to endure, it forces us to understand the importance of relationships, values, and life itself.
