The Day That Changed My Life - Cancer Treatment for the Body, Mind & Spirit

Each week the goal is to look for stories with the hopes that it will inspire, encourage and be a resource for you. This week we want to focus on an incredible place that offers excellent services to their patients. While many people travel from state to state or abroad for top of the line cancer treatment/therapy services, we have found the perfect spot right here in New York City and you don't have to be a millionaire to receive care.

We are so excited to introduce you to a special place in New York where cancer patients can go for treatment in a spa like environment - The Farber Center. This amazing facility offers quality services to their patients and the best part is that they accept almost every insurance.

From the moment you step into the center, you are greeted warmly. There is a sense of intimacy and a high regard for each person's privacy. The waiting area is quite spacious and it has a calming effect. Speaking of the calming effect, they have recently partnered with Urben Zen to provide Integrative therapy to all their Farber Center patients on treatment. Offering specific integrative therapy sessions: specific yoga therapies, Reiki therapy, and Oil therapy that deal with different aspects of the symptoms of all diseases. Urben Zen has designed yoga therapies to assit with the symptoms of pain, anxiety, nausea, insomnia, constipation and exhaustion. All in all, The Farber Center has taken the holistic approach in healing not only the body but also the mind and spirit.

While each journey is unique, we all share a common theme - cancer changes our lives forever.

The Day That Changed My Life - Can't Afford to be Misdiagnosed

March is the Colorectal Cancer Awareness month and we are featuring the survivors who share their journeys after being diagnosed with cancer. We hope that it will inspire and bring hope to others.

Can you imagine the shock of learning that you have colon cancer? Vicki had no family history, she did not even consider being diagnosed with cancer. Here she shares the resources that helped her through the uncertain journey of colon cancer.

Anita Mitchell also shares her journey and the reluctance of her doctors referring her to get the right tests/screenings. She also emphasizes the importance of being specific and knowing your family's health history.

Candace Henley is open about her symptoms and what led her to seek medical attention. However, the dismissal from the medical doctors at the emergency room serves as a reminder to be persistent about getting help for any unusual/abnormal symptoms. Your body is alerting you that something is not working as it should and you must take that seriously.

John Lloyd assumed that he had hemorrhoids but he was surprised to find that he had adenocarcinoma. Here he shares his journey and the importance of early detection and screening.

While each journey is unique, we all share a common theme - cancer changes our lives forever. Share this with everyone you know as they may know someone who needs to see this.
