It's never a good time to be diagnosed with cancer. When cancer shows up, it is not welcomed with a sigh of relief. No one exclaims "Great, I was wondering what took you so long." It is one of the most feared diagnosis that one dreads. After the shock settles in, the next step is the journey of the unknown. Will I make it through this? The hope of surviving is very strong.
Survivors are a unique group of people who have endured a major challenge yet somehow, they were able to overcome and achieve a promising future. This week we found some couples who share their journeys with kidney cancer. Listen as Laura Campbell explores the symptoms that she ignored; then there is couple from Poland who were living the American Dream, enjoying their life and accomplishing their goals when they learned that kidney cancer had now come in to shake up their happy lives.
While each journey is unique, we all share a common theme - cancer changes our lives forever.
