I had breast cancer. With this blog, I hope to inform readers that you can reduce your risk of cancer, but what if you already have it?
Healthy lifestyle behaviors – regular exercise, stress reduction, nutritious diet and restorative sleep- have just as big an impact on your health now, probably even more so, since now the stakes are higher. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle reduces the risk of recurrence and increases longevity for cancer survivors.
I look at my lifestyle before my diagnosis, and now, in hindsight, it’s easy to see what I was doing wrong. Even though good things have come from my cancer diagnosis, of course, I wish it had never happened.
