The 5 Year Journey: From a Cancer Diagnosis to Finding Peace

I didn’t ask for cancer, but it sure found me! It found me in an aggressive way 5 years ago. I watched my so-called normal life implode. This wasn’t my first big fight, but it was one of those final straw moments. 

It was an abrupt stop in life as I knew it. Having the feeling that something is really wrong and then hearing “you have cancer” wreaks havoc in your world. It was like a black hole opened up and sucked me in. I’m not a dramatic person, but I can tell you it surpassed anything I had experienced before.

I started this show almost 2 years ago. It was 3 years after my first cancer diagnosis, after multiple surgeries,  2 years of cancer treatments and recently getting the all clear on a scan. The world was adjusting to this new realm of living in a world struggling to understand a pandemic.

I had to figure life out in a whole new way to live, to think and be. To find peace…

    The part where he mentions that he wants to be adopted by a more functional family even at 45 yrs really hits home. Really delineates how no matter how old and independent you are, you still need love and support.


    Albert Einstein said, 'If you can't explain it simply enough, you haven't understood it well enough'.Dr Andrew brings such simplicity to explaining the workings of the brain. It's actually a hacker's guide into our own brain. You are doing great service to humanity Dr Andrew.
