Be an Exceptional Cancer Survivor
“Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other.” – Abraham Lincoln
Do you want to outlive cancer?
In the pilot program of a new television series, Chasing Life, an oncologist is asked by the cancer patient, “You can treat it, right?” The oncologist responded with “Treating isn’t the same as curing.”
Our treatments today do not treat the cause of cancer in the body. They only treat the cancer.
While there is no cure for cancer at this time, long term cancer survivors do exist.
In Kelly Turner’s book Radical Remission, she acknowledges that she has asked a number of oncologists if they have ever seen a case of “radical remission” in their practice. Turner defines a radical remission as being a statistically unexpected cancer remission. Each oncologist has answered yes. When asked if they have published the case(s) in academic journals, the answers thus far have all been no.
Look beyond medical treatment for a complete recovery from cancer. Look to long term cancer survivors who have walked the walk,who are outliers (pronounced out-līər – they lay outside the norm.
We, who are outliers, are exceptions to science and medical statistics. Long term cancer survivors have volumes of experience to share – experience of getting through treatment (with the least amount side effects). We have achieved the optimum result – outliving cancer years beyond completion of treatment.
If you are a cancer patient, do something good for yourself. Make a commitment be a victorious cancer survivor.
“Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win.” – Sun Tzu
Acknowledge you can be an exceptional survivor first, and then do all you can to outlive cancer.
