Many women make a life out of doing for others and accomplishing much. We’ve learned to run our households, ferry our children, succeed in the workplace, and volunteer in our communities.
A cancer diagnosis temporarily changes a woman’s ability to manage her life and care for those around her. It instead renders her in need of help and support, herself. For some, this switching of roles can be very challenging. Working through a breast cancer diagnosis and treatment plan is physically and mentally challenging.
It is a good time to embrace those around you who are there to offer support. Accept their love, kindness and generosity. Let them help with meals, errands, and driving. Allow them to be the listening ears and strong shoulders that every woman navigating a cancer diagnosis needs.
