Hi, new to the cancer community. Diagnosed early April 2022 with metastatic pancreatic cancer at 46. Round 3 of chemo on Monday. Terrified but trying to stay strong for my 4 boys. Can't wrap my head around how I went from healthy working mum to fortnightly chemo mum. Seeking hope and reassurance from the wise all knowing cancer community
Hi MiracleSeeker, so sorry about your diagnosis. Especially hard when you have 4 children! Most of us have gone from thinking we were healthy, to having a cancer diagnosis and then treatment which makes us feel so bad. I can remember all my anxiety last year when I was diagnosed with non Hodgkin’s lymphoma. It’s a stressful time. Hope and pray that you have a good medical team around you and also loving family and friends. That makes all the difference on this hard journey. Always ask for help when you are struggling. Sending you lots of prayers and love 🙏💕 Linda G
I want to say that the disease does not define you; how you look does not define you. It is who you are, the inner you defines who you are.
Do not think about the disease or think about how terrible the situation is, think about healing, think in solutions.
Miracles come from faith, build that faith and let people around you see that faith and inner strength radiate from you. Mums are tough, especially mum of 4 boys! 🙂 I am sure some time later when you look back, you will think, this is nothing, I can do it! 🙂
God be with you!
Do not be afraid.
