Patient Empowerment

 It was not long after my “first” diagnosis that I found myself in a breast cancer support group. As the facilitator. I was standing in for a friend who was on vacation, and a new group member joined that week. The group and I were all in for a surprise that afternoon, and I’ve never forgotten the lessons I learned. Please check out my piece When A Patient Chooses a Different Path in the magazine.

    Very thought provoking having also facilitated for three years a group for Ovarian Cancer.. And another for Post natal Depression.. There is always the occasion when you feel you have not met someones needs and these times do stay with you far more than the successful times!! Thank you for sharing this story…
