Cancer Can Be Beaten

In the past few months the word cancer has taken on a new meaning in my vocabulary. As a trained medical professional, I have looked after hundreds, if not thousands of people with cancer over the last almost 30 years. In April it became a lot more personal and has challenged every aspect of my life. When Janice Chisholm and Kirk MacQuarrie said I should join their team while we were at apres Ski in Whistler this past February the meaning of Riding For Cancer is a whole lot different now than it was then.

Things I have learned on this mandatory journey (keeping in mind I have almost 30 years Emergency Medicine care):

1. The emotional and mental health toll of a new diagnosis is 1000% understated. This may be the lesson most valuable that I take on in my care of others with a new diagnosis. It really is a hidden curriculum.

2. The support from friends and family is priceless. Fortunate to have this in spades in our network and while accepting help can be difficult, it has been necessary and welcome.

3. Coming from a background of privilege and "understanding" of our healthcare system and the players within it has made it helpful to negotiate this world, but it is still disjointed and frustrating. The lesson I take from this is that those who do not know or are unable to advocate for themselves in a medical system are left feeling lost, hopeless and without direction--they need help.

4. While one needs to focus on diagnosis, treatment and healing, they can not do that to the exclusion of other things...navigating finances, work issues, family issues, supporting your loved ones, taking care of self all have to happen and this splinters your attention and energy. Take time for your own wellness in this sea of uncertainty.

5. I hope that by sharing some insights about this journey it may stir in your heart something that connects you to this fundraising effort to support those less fortunate than my family in this ongoing battle.

While I have never been a big fan of the slogan: F%&K Cancer, I am now: FUCK CANCER.

Donate if and what you can. It will make a difference for somebody.
