A Tough Question: Can I Live with Cancer?

Dear Friend,

Cancer statistics can seem encouraging when talking about advancements made in early detection and new treatments. The same statistics are devastating when you or a loved one has been diagnosed and you are reading about the number of lives lost to various types of cancer.

At Issels® Integrative Immuno-Oncology, we understand that each person's cancer is due to different causes and conditions. We believe that treatment should be highly personalized and know that recovery depends on many factors.

Living with cancer

The American Cancer Society says that cancers like ovarian cancer, leukemia, and some types of lymphoma often don't go completely away. The same is true of cancers that spread to other parts of the body, such as prostate cancer and breast cancer.

These cancers can be treated and reduced, but the treatment is one of ongoing maintenance. Treatment focuses on helping to prevent caner's spread and stop its growth. It is not accurate to say that these types of cancers can be cured.

Disease management and emotional growth

Living with this disease is often the biggest challenge most people will ever face. Treatment schedules disrupt your routines and take both a financial and physical toll. Many people suddenly find themselves no longer in the role of caregiver, but instead, needing the care, support, and understanding of others.

It is important to seek out others going through similar circumstances. Living with cancer has a way of building strong bonds among people who hardly know one another. It can also make it easier to express affection and appreciation for people close to you.

Contact Issels® Integrative Immuno-Oncology to learn about your available treatment options. We combine treatment with a focus on improving the quality of life for our patients.
