What does it take to walk through the fire of cancer emotions?


The courage to show up authentically to our grief, our pain, our fear and our loss. And, never, never, never doubting our right to say “fuck off” to positivity when that’s the way we feel.

As Psychologist Susan David says,

“(B)eing positive has become a new form of moral correctness. People with cancer are automatically told to just stay positive. … It’s a tyranny. It’s a tyranny of positivity. And it’s cruel. Unkind. And ineffective.”
