During your journey with cancer, be sure to surround yourself with excellent people. Form a
team of people with excellence in knowledge, encouragement, and collecting facts. Spending a significant amount of time with excellent people will help you get the information and support you need as you fight cancer.
Here are some excellent people you want to be part of your battle with cancer.
A primary care doctor you like. If you don’t have one, find one. They may need to care for you if you need urgent or hospital care. Do some investigating to find the best fit for you. Look for a doctor who’s knowledgeable, open to answering questions, and willing to follow your breast cancer diagnosis.
A nurse navigator. They provide a wealth of information and services to help you understand the cancer diagnosis and treatment process. You need this knowledgeable, caring person in your corner.
Close friends. They can listen to you, provide comfort, and help out as needed. Allow your friends to provide meals, watch your kids, and clean your home. They want to support you however you need.
A second opinion when needed. If you don’t feel comfortable with what one medical professional suggests, make an appointment to talk with another. You’ll feel more like you’re moving in the right direction on your journey with cancer.
