The First Steps
1) Have someone to be by your side to support you.
2) Get organized with doctor information, household help, and financial help.
3) Get a 2nd opinion about your type of cancer, stage and treatment options.
4) Ask each doctor you see for cancer treatment center suggestions.
5) Review treatment options – mainstream and C.A.M. (complimentary and alternative medicine).
6) Have questions to ask your healthcare team, from surgeon, oncologist, radiologist, etc.
7) Connect with other Victorious people who can mentor you through this and caregiver sites.
This is, of course, the first thing one experiences. The questions start racing in your mind and the fear sweeps over you. Have someone with you because usually we miss everything said after we hear “cancer.” Breath. There are so many options and positive outcomes and things you can do to beat cancer as millions already do and have.
Here are some questions you can ask each oncologist you interview for treatment:
1) What do you think caused this cancer?
2) What type of chemo/radiation is going to attack this cancer?
3) Is it curative or palliative?
4) How long will I be in treatment and how often and how much will it cost?
5) What is the 5 and 10 year disease free survival rate with the treatment plan you’re suggesting?
6) Ask for copies of the “material safety data sheets” for the chemo drugs suggested for treatment.
7) I would like the Onconomics Plus Test to see which drugs will respond to this cancer.
8) What other treatment options are available here for this cancer type?
9) What side effects will I encounter possibly?
10) How many other patients have you treated that had this type of cancer?
11) How long will it take for me to recuperate after treatment?
12) Would you do this treatment or treatments suggested?

Living well after cancer
Remember, be communicative with others who want to support and love you. Tell them how they can help and let them help you in even the smallest of details. People who care are also confused as to how to be around you and are at a loss for words too. I created a chalkboard whereby my friends and family were asked to leave an uplifting message to me before leaving. That felt so loving and lasting until they came back to write something new. Make positive changes forward, as noted in Victory Lifestyle, every chance you can.
Be an advocate for your health. There are answers to getting you well and I’m here to help with resources. The End.
BE BRAVE + MAKE HEALTH CHANGES + INCORPORATE A LOVING ENVIRONMENT = VOW VICTORY
