NCAN Patient Conference

Our disease is a hard sea to sail, its dark and the waters are rough. NCAN’s patient conferences are the lighthouses we need to see. The opportunities are vast and have great potential. The world’s best are at your disposal. Complicated questions are answered, resources are revealed and for a week you can feel wonderful as you meet others who walk the same road. If you have Neuroendocrine cancer you need to attend an NCAN patient conference.

These conferences create opportunities, open minds and save lives. Knowledge is power, especially when it comes to our cancer journey. If you don’t have the right information you will walk down the wrong path, get pushed down dark roads and be robed of your quality and quantity of life.

While at my first patient conference I learned so much about the disease, the community and how ignorance has hurt me. It opened doorways to talk with the world’s leading doctors and nurses specializing in Neuroendocrine cancer. The event created opportunities that would not have been possible otherwise. I was educated about symptom reducing treatment, life saving possibilities and so much more!

If you have Neuroendocrine cancer these conferences will give you options, open doorways and grant you the tools to travel this terrible road. When I went to the NCAN patient conference in Las Vegas it was a transformative experience.  When I met others sailing the sea of this terrible disease, it parted the clouds, opened the sky and warmed my skin to some sunshine.

Everywhere I turned I saw care givers, companions and cancer patients who know how the cancer serpent can change us. How it often steals a certain something, perhaps our purpose and peace, or the golden glowy goodness that helped us feel free.

It is more than magnificent lectures, learning and literature, it is a doorway to a welcoming world. A break from the fight, a massage of the soul and a sense that we have a place to go.

It is an opportunity for patients to listen, learn and share. A time to receive a reprieve from the horrors of this disease. It is a weekend to be surrounded by doctors, nurses and pharmaceutical leaders who care. To be educated by those who know how this illness grabs, takes and swallows us like a snake. Coiling around us twisting and squeezing till we’ve had all we can take. It is a place where we are welcomed by compassionate, empathetic people educated enough to help us with our hurt.

In your time here you will see a sight that will set you free. If you are sitting in the shadows, lost on a road and feel you have no place to go, look to the light and find your hope. At this event there are others who have walked your path, who can light the road and show you home.

Living With Cancer

Words of Hope 27

Remember it’s fun to swim and dance with glee, cause when you do it sets you free. Truth be told, if I may be so bold, being silly makes me smile. It gets rid of the waste by making my day taste sweet and tart as it warms my heart. It is especially great when its late and we feel old and cold. We can scrape off the stress as we are impressed by the marvelous melodies of our magnificent moments. So as you sit, sleep or stand wiggle your feet like you are listening to a band. Shift your hips from side to side like the electric slide. Laugh, love and live your life to the fullest. Use your clever mind and pull joy’s lever and surely you will have fun forever!

Words of Hope 22

What makes you feel right? Is it a dark scary night? A woeful wind? A roaring rain?

Do you feel at peace when your heart is teased, when you can’t find release, perhaps when your bound in bondage?

Are you free when you can’t see or are in agony?

What is harmony? Is it a moment of dancing with glee? Perhaps when you discover your destiny? Is it a moment when you can simply be?

Can you reach inside yourself and find the things you need? Are you a circle that is complete? Are you ready to be set free?

Are you ready to breath?
