We can help, because we have been there.

What people touched by cancer can teach us about surviving the coronavirus pandemic.

#resilience
Resilience is about utilizing our inner strength, and drawing from the lessons of others to simply survive and persevere. It is not about finding our way back to where we were but rather it is about seeing this as an opportunity to chart a new course.

 

We have the power to choose how we react to the uncertainty of COVID-19. Will we surrender and be overwhelmed by the enormity and gravity of the situation, or will we find a way to find meaning in this new existence? That power to choose, that power to survive, that power to persevere is resilience.
