Welcome to our Oct/Nov issue and as we celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Month, our theme is I define me so remember “My past has not defined me; destroyed me; deterred me or defeated me; it has only strengthened me.”
When it comes to cancer, our Super Survivors inspire as they define themselves, “I can choose to let it define me; confine me; refine me; outshine me or I can choose to move on and leave it behind me.”
Let’s look at what’s in the mag.
We can never have enough articles on Knowing your subtype of breast cancer; the quote “Don’t be so easily defined” applies here. So, read as we (multi-disciplinary team) get smarter at subtyping and treating on how cancers behave.
Read about Radiotherapy in breast cancer: what you should know as there is so much misperception about this important treatment modality. Remember “Perception is a wave. You change as your perception of something changes because you define yourself as a reflection of whatever you happen to perceive.”
A healthy lifestyle is always important and defining this is difficult and individual so believe in your dreams (of exercise and healthy eating…a daily challenge) and define yourself endlessly. Be yourself; but always better yourself.
I defined The nipple – the signature of the breast and the issues that may arise.
Finally, “Don’t let the world define you; your definition only needs to resonate with yourself.” “Follow your own star!”
