My grandma has been diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer and the doctor told us she only left with 6 months. She was so upset when she first heard this news. She was complaining about this body was old and useless made her suffer and she lost all hope to live. This was upsetting to me as well to see her in this negative mode. I supported her with my traditional Chinese herbal medicine to help her build up her immune system but the effect was very limited. I then realised if she didn't change the way she see this cancer, no one else can help her. I found her a life coach which changed her dramatically. She finally has the hope to live on and is not scared of cancer anymore. Now has been seven months and she is going pretty well her body recovered well and she starts to walk around the house now.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
