You or someone you love has been diagnosed with cancer. You’re shocked. You’re frightened. May be even angry. But then you got busy …

Filling out paper work, making appointments, meeting specialists, dealing with insurance companies, researching the diagnosis and other medical terminology, evaluating treatment options, thinking, planning, trying to understand, explaining to your family and friends and waiting for appointments, results and waiting some more. You’ve been so busy doing, may be it’s been hard to feel anything at all.

 “If I could just catch my breath”, you think to yourself, “I could do this, better . . . “

May be you are feeling an urge to slow it down, to be more present. To carefully consider your choices, and make decisions that feel right, decisions that reflect both your goals and your heart. Perhaps someone mentioned that yoga would be good or you should give meditation a try but frankly it is overwhelming to think of putting another thing on the schedule right now. You need some space, not another appointment.

You know everything will be OK in the end . . .

If you could just remember to take a breath . . . may be if you had someone to teach you how to breathe, how to quiet the mind, to meditate, how to rest peacefully even during stressful or challenging times. You could be the person you want to be as you live this challenging chapter of your life.

Hi ~ I’m Shauna MacKay and I’ve been negotiating cancer since I was 12 when my brother was diagnosed with brain cancer. At 19, my dad had his first of several surgeries to manage metastatic kidney cancer. But it was my mom’s diagnosis of terminal uterine cancer in 2009, that prompted me to share what I’ve learned and lived with others. Finding inner peace and wellness is not only possible when dealing with a cancer diagnosis but is the way to thrive.
