Lifestyle Choices for Cancer Survivors

Life as a cancer survivor can be as rich and rewarding as you decide to make it. In fact, increased awareness of mortality is all some people need to feel more alive than ever.

Coping with Cancer Through Mind, Body, Spirit, and Emotions

You can find many ways to cope with stress. The goal of each approach, whether it be coping skills or relaxation techniques, is to bring you from a place of tension to a place of serenity - mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

Palliative Care: Bringing Comfort

Palliative care focuses on improving a patient’s quality of life by improving the symptoms of his or her illness, such as pain, shortness of breath, and difficulty sleeping. It's used with a variety of ailments, including cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, kidney failure, or congestive heart failure.

Cancer and Spirituality

People with cancer often tap into their spiritual side when battling the illness. This might include prayer, attending religious services, reading passages from a holy book, or simply expressing gratitude and love.
