Travel Is Part of My Recovery Plan

by Bisa Myles

Before I had ever taken my first trip, I knew I loved travel. As an adult, I’ve managed to go on at least one solo trip a year. Less than two months after returning from a three-week-long trip to Thailand and Bali in 2015, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was 41.

Boxer Daniel Jacobs

by Kaylene Chadwell

If there’s one thing professional boxer Daniel Jacobs knows how to do, it’s fight. As a young teenager living in Brownsville, one of Brooklyn, New York’s most dangerous neighborhoods, he took up boxing to defend himself against a school bully. The amateur boxer quickly made a name for himself in the ring.

Recording 137 wins to just 7 losses and racking up a slew of amateur titles, Daniel was dubbed “The Golden Child.” He even made a bid to be part of the 2008 U.S. Olympic boxing team. But, after losing a match in the Olympic trial finals and falling just short of making the team, Daniel decided to turn pro in 2007. He kicked off his professional career by winning an astounding 20 fights in a row.

The Power of the Journey

by Mary Sand

Seven miles outside of Grand Forks, North Dakota, on I-29 South, is a billboard, advertising a state college, that says “The Power of the Journey.” I noticed it last July on my first visit to the Roger Maris Cancer Center in Fargo. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve passed by it since then. All I know is those words have made a lasting impact. Whenever I see that billboard, I’m reminded that I’m on a journey; it’s powerful, and it’s going to be long.

Just Got Diagnosed?

by Gary R. McClain, PhD

As a therapist who specializes in working with people facing a serious medical diagnosis, including cancer, I see many people come into my office struggling with their emotional reac­tions to their diagnosis and what it will mean for their lives. We talk about their fears and hopes about treatment, as well as all those strange and uncom­fortable feelings that keep bubbling up. And we talk about what a cancer diagnosis means for their future. This is what I tell them.

Travel Gently

by Lisa K. Tager, JD, MSW, LICSW

I first heard the words “travel gently” at a meditation class in New York that I attended with my daughter. The meditation class was held in a dark, cool dome of a room. A facilitator led us in counting and encouraged us to gently push away other thoughts from our minds. Since cancer, I had been mak­ing myself do this regularly, so I was actually not bad at this exercise. BC (or before cancer), I was never able to do anything like that! Before cancer, I was barely able to relax long enough to sit still – let alone (attempt to) meditate.
