“When I was first diagnosed I set some key
values to help me manage during treatment.
They’ve given me strength at times when I’ve
needed to focus day to day instead of on the
overwhelming nature of this journey. They are:
Courage – be brave, gather knowledge, and
remember I can only control the controllable.
Heart – smile lots, be positive.
Trust – the process, myself, the health
professionals and the outcome. Rachel ”
