Good morning. My breast cancer was diagnosed in 2004, it went stage IV in 2014. I have done a combination of allopathic medicine and homeopathic treatments to stay alive as long as I have. I think the most important thing I've learnt in these 14 years of having cancer is simply to do with the mind. Allowing the mind to rule the body is imperative when it comes to surviving cancer. One's emotional state, how you feel about your illness, is as important as what is going on physically. I want the doctors opinion but I know it is only an opinion. There is no one here on this planet with the "one single silver bullet" answer. Cancer is a process of questions and more questions. There are very few definitive answers. The one thing I would say that is definitive is attitude. Trying to stay positive and upbeat even when you are down for the count is hard and demanding. It is however the only path way through that I have found that is consistently productive and helpful. Staying in the present moment and not worrying too much about the future seems to be the answer for me. I think worry, anxiety and stress of such bad friends to cancer patients. These things make our physical condition worse and our emotional state much worse. Taking every day as it comes and enjoying the things in life that are still available to us our the cornerstones of survival. Living is the cure.
