Special Feature Edition: Pathways to Resilience: Embracing our Vulnerability, Celebrating our Resilience
In today’s post for our month long feature #pathways2resilience, we are delighted and honoured to share Uzma Yunus’ blog post about the challenges of living with cancer and its effects. Uzma is a mother, physician and psychiatrist whose writing resonates across the world:
"Many survivors end up having clinical depression, anxiety and even post-traumatic stress disorder. The battle with cancer continues for a survivor despite cancer being gone from their bodies. The fear of cancer lingers over most survivors and then about thirty percent like me have to deal with recurrence and start of the treatments all over again. For us with metastatic breast cancer, it is never over at all. Our fears just get bigger and scarier."
