Money for the Toll Road

by Karen Mechanic, MD

No one wants to be afraid. But fear is a natural response to an unexpected situation. Fear prepares you to face what’s in front of you. It’s normal to be afraid when you’re told you have cancer, while you’re going through treatment, or even after some time has passed and you’re in remission.

Gain Control of Your Anxiety and Depression

by Maria Rueda-Lara, MD

Putting Stress in Its Place

by Bonnie A. McGregor, PhD

The diagnosis, treatment, and recovery from cancer is a continuum. When your doctor tells you that you’re cancer-free, there’s a sense of relief. However, even though the treatment is over, the emotional and physical recovery is only just beginning.

I’ve done many crazy things in my life, but there are two that stick out: performing stand-up and climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. Both were intimidating. And both made me throw up.

We have all heard the word depression, and each of us likely has our own definition of it. For some, it is a momentary feeling of more “down and blue” than usual or a mood caused by something frightening, like cancer.

Cultivating an Attitude of Gratitude

by Betsy Kohn, MA, PC, and Mary Fisher Bornstein, LISW-S

What does it mean to be grateful? Does living a life where you practice gratitude change your perspective? Do you notice any changes in your relationships with others or with yourself when you practice an attitude of gratitude? These questions often arise for those who focus on the concept of gratitude. For those on the cancer journey, these questions may surface both during and after treatment, as this is often a time of reflection and contemplation.
