Survivor, Stage II Triple Negative Breast Cancer (BRCA 1+)
Twist on Cancer: I have stalled over this question since I enrolled in the Brushes program. Since I'm a long-term survivor, I have been through so many of the stages of the lessons and strategies used in dealing with cancer, from the newly diagnosed to active treatment, through that rough period of just after active treatment ends, bringing me to now dealing with long-term impacts.

I guess my Twist on Cancer is that, just like so many things in life, the lessons, strategies, and perspectives have to change and shift as one moves through an experience. Just when I think I have a stage of this experience figured out, things change and I have to learn to adapt with that change. It would seem with all these years of experience, I wouldn't fight those changes, but like everyone, I do and then I shift and find a new perspective.
