Navigating the

treatment process

When you’re Fairly young

and told that you have cancer, it’s easy to play the 'what if ' games

about your future. Instead, I found tremendous comfort in focusing on

the things that I could control, such as taking medications as directed,

taking an active role in educating myself about my disease and my

treatment plan, and ensuring I asked (and received) proper answers to

all my questions.”
