Cancer Warrior

I very much believe that there's a reason for everything. Sometimes, especially during the really tough challenges that life seems to throw at us, it's just so very hard to see the hidden gift. In retrospect, perhaps these experiences provide the greatest gifts because they are so very hard fought.

Ruth Levine is the Cancer Warrior. She's an extraordinary woman in so many ways. In 2006, she was diagnosed with stage four colorectal cancer. Facing chemotherapy, radiation, and major surgery, she made a pledge to herself that she would focus on healing. To that end, she built herself up physically, mentally, and spiritually to face come what may. Then, even in her darkest moments, she not only believed she would win the battle against cancer but she knew that the cancer was meant to make her a better occupational therapist.

Whether our life lesson comes in the form of cancer or something else that shakes us to our core, we need to stay strong and positive. This story is a wonderful example of that faith and courage. Be well Ruth.

Take a look at "When Cancer Hits" by Britta Aragon. This volume covers from soup to nuts just about everything a patient must do in post-cancer operations and continuing management of the condition.
