Hello everyone, 

How are you today? emoticon cute

When going through treatment, patients may often turn to certain sources of comfort to take their minds off their cancer or what they're going through. It may be a TV show or book, a particular activity or ritual, or even a piece of clothing or blanket.

A member living with breast cancer on Carenity France just shared a testimonial with us where she explains how she turned to writing for comfort and to express herself while in treatment for cancer: Breast cancer: "Writing has become indispensable for me!”

What or whom did you turn to for comfort while in treatment for breast cancer? Was there a ritual or habit that helped you? A particular person or activity? Can you share any tips with other members who may currently be in treatment?

Feel free to share with us here!

Take care,

Sources of comfort during breast cancer treatment

Between the pandemic and treatments I've gotten into podcasts, not just for the boredom and sitting around during sessions, but also because sometimes it's all I have the energy to do. Sometimes even keeping my eyes open takes effort, so TV is out.
