Why I Decided to Share My Breast Cancer Journey

https://moniquerose8.com/2018/01/18/why-i-started-to-share-my-breast-cancer-journey/

Have you ever been so scared of something that you had butterflies in your stomach and your mind couldn’t stop thinking about all the “what ifs?” Like going for a job interview or going off to college for the first time away from your family. The unknown can be scary, really scary. Our minds start going crazy and think about all of the things that could happen. We may not get that job that we worked really hard to get. What if we get home sick when we are away at college? What if we don’t like it? What if college isn’t right for us? The questions go on and on and on.

Being scared of something can also make us form relationships with others. We start to talk to others and see if they felt the same way. Getting advice from other people who were once scared of the same thing you were can be reassuring. We can ask people questions and be a little bit more prepared. Talking to someone who understands your exact situation can be life-changing and make us feel just a little bit better. Like everything is going to be okay.

And that is exactly why I decided to share my breast cancer journey.

I started sharing my breast cancer journey about two years ago and I was so scared at first. I was scared to show myself without hair and to be vulnerable and sick. I was scared to show that I was weak and that chemo was completely taking control of my body. I was scared to actually believe that I had breast cancer. Did I really have cancer? Hearing those words was completely life changing and I don’t think they will ever escape my mind.

I put all of those scared feelings aside and I started to write. I started to share my journey of … Read More

5 Empowering Reasons to Try Yoga Therapy

https://rethinkbreastcancer.com/5-empowering-reasons-to-try-yoga-therapy/

Most of us don’t think twice about enlisting the help of a personal trainer to work us through our fitness goals so why not take the same approach with a yoga therapist to work on your wellness goals? By helping you move better using breath, stillness and movement in all forms, not just yoga poses, the mentor/coach-style treatment aims to help combat symptoms like fatigue, pain, reduced mobility and anxiety. The goal? To take you from rehabilitation to wellness.

Yoga Therapy is not restorative yoga, nor is it about bending and twisting deeply. It’s for people of all levels of mobility and experiences. It’s also empowering, and here’s why:

Your therapy should be as unique as you.

The unique you-ness is expressed in how symptoms show up. The expertise of a yoga therapist is seeing your movement and breathing patterns, and meeting you where you are at by honouring your full context, including the kind of person you are, what’s important to you and how you are feeling that day. We typically start small and slow by focusing on one joint and one movement at a time, as small and slow movements are more open for awareness building, easier for the nervous system to learn, and progress occurs more quickly. You will be surprised how small movements can release tension. As we progress, we may increase the number of joints involved, number of reps and speed. We may also transition from sitting or lying down movements to more standing movements to build stability and strength.

It nurtures a sense of safety.

When the nervous system is in the stress response mode, breath gets shallow, muscles tighten, the digestive system and sleep get thrown off, and your ability to cope suffers. Anxiety and fear exacerbate the stress response. A feeling of safety is essential for healing, and it’s important to work with someone who nurtures and encourages a safe place both in sessions and in your life.

It helps you listen to your body.

Your body holds mo… Read More

Will Lynparza Work for You?

http://www.breastcancer.org/treatment/targeted_therapies/lynparza/will-it-work

Lynparza is used to treat metastatic HER2-negative breast cancer with an inherited BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation that has previously been treated chemotherapy.

Metastatic breast cancer is breast cancer that has spread to parts of the body away from the breast, such as the bones or liver.

You are substantially more likely to have a BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation if:

  • You have blood relatives (grandmothers, mother, sisters, aunts) on either your mother’s or father’s side of the family who had breast cancer diagnosed before age 50.
  • There is both breast and ovarian cancer on the same side of the family or in a single individual.
  • You have a relative(s) with triple-negative breast cancer.
  • There are other cancers in your family in addition to breast, such as prostate, melanoma, pancreatic, stomach, uterine, thyroid, colon, and/or sarcoma.
  • Women in your family have had cancer in both breasts.
  • You are of Ashkenazi Jewish (Eastern European) heritage.
  • You are African American and have been diagnosed with breast cancer at age 35 or younger.
  • A man in your family has had breast cancer.
  • There is a known abnormal breast cancer gene in your family.

A genetic test can determine whether you have a BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation. A genetic test involves giving a blood or saliva sample that is analyzed to pick up any abnormalities in these genes.

For more information on genetic testing, including types of genetic tests and costs, visit the Breastcancer.org Genetic Testing pages.
