A Unique Perspective on Hope from Cancer Survivors

Dear Friend,

Here at Issels®, we frequently encounter people who have been newly diagnosed with cancer, and their hope for a long healthy life seems gone. For the longest time, a cancer diagnosis has been linked with impending death, and while it's true that some do lose their lives to this terrible disease, for the first time cancer patients can truly have hope.

There have been many advances in cancer treatment in recent years, and more patients are getting screened early on if they feel they are at higher risk. Early detections and improvements in treatment are saving lives, and the number of cancer survivors is expected to increase at an incredible rate in the months and years ahead. Currently, there are 15.5 million cancer survivors in the United States, and in just ten years that number is expected to hit 20 million.

Knowing these numbers is important, because cancer survivors have different needs than cancer patients; especially those who have undergone treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation. These patients often have serious, long-standing effects from what we've always thought of as "conventional" cancer treatments, and experts are still trying to find a way to help them with the physiological and psychological effects that can last the rest of their lives.

There's no question that chemotherapy and radiation have been life-saving for many cancer survivors. However, they have also caused significant problems, such as heart disease, osteoporosis, neuropathy, and other physical ailments.

At Issels®, our focus is on non-toxic immunotherapy, which has been shown to have no devastating long-term effects. Please contact us to learn more about this important breakthrough in cancer treatment.

Cancer Survivors: How to Thrive After Treatment

Cancer is a physical disease that also affects your mental and emotional states. Don't allow worries about finances, spousal intimacy or other issues to interfere with your recovery. Talk to your doctor and get a referral for a counselor or support group. The end of treatment can be similar to other types of loss, where you feel uncertain about where to go from there. Focus on matters you can control, such as following a healthy diet or staying physically active, and you will feel less anxious about the things you can't.

How to Survive Cancer – Tips From Sam Donaldson

Here are Donaldson's top tips for people who have cancer, as told to the National Institutes of Health: 1.) While cancer can still be fatal, it's no longer an automatic death sentence and the "Cancer Survivors Club" is growing each year. 2.) Get a second opinion, and even a third if need be. Consulting more than one specialist improves the accuracy of your diagnosis and helps you find the expert best suited for your treatment. As Donaldson says, a positive attitude doesn't cure cancer, but there's no question that it makes a difference.
