As a breast cancer survivor and an Oncology Massage Therapist I believe that helping others find resources outside of traditional cancer treatments is highly beneficial. I fully believe in allopathic medicine such as radiation and chemotherapy for those who choose it, but I found when I was going through surgery and various treatments that each area is highly specialized (a plus from a medical perspective for sure). Sometimes the whole person involved can get lost in the focus on various aspects of the disease. Services like Nancy’s List, Mend After Cancer, and organizations such as the Society for Oncology Massage can help you find practitioners and services available for the person going through treatment as well as caregivers. Often you can buy gift certificates and share information as well. I hope that you personally remain untouched by cancer but love that you care enough to be prepared to help if called.
