When you receive a cancer diagnosis, the news can be overwhelming. A flood of emotions begins to affect the way your mind works. The next hurdle is dealing with the treatments and the stress that comes along with that process. The daily routine is completely focused on survival, and that will change your ability to focus and stay present. No two people will react the same way to the news of a cancer diagnosis. However, everyone can benefit from treatments designed to calm the central nervous system. It is beneficial to see treatment as a combination of mind, body, and spirit. This process ha proven to be effective in dealing with the side effects of cancer treatments.
The program we use at the Breast Cancer Relief Network can assist by having the mind be centered and peaceful. Optimism and positive emotions have proven to be effective ways to assist cancer patients during their treatment routines. If the mind is centered and at peace, it is in a better position to provide daily maintenance.
Each year more than 230,000 women in the US will learn they have breast cancer, according to the National Cancer Institute. The stress the breast cancer patient is dealing with can have an effect on their loved ones. Our Program can help them as well deal with the stress of seeing their loved ones go through the treatments. According to a research study, as many as 40% of male partners of breast cancer patients themselves are diagnosed with depression and other mood disorders.
Breast cancer survivors also need continued stress reduction. The emotional recovery may actually take longer than the physical recovery. For many survivors, there is a residual fear experienced and our Program is beneficial in these cases as well. Breast cancer affects both the mind and the body, so reducing stress and negative emotions, programs like ours could potentially play an important role in the treatment process.
With the continued help and support of generous people like you, we will continue our support programs so the many people living with Breast Cancer can live a more normal everyday life.
