Life After a Cancer Diagnosis
Areas of support
"Melissa has been invaluable in helping me navigate 2 breast cancer surgeries and the continuing follow up. I'd been talking with oncology social workers, therapists, support groups, but I never felt really supported. Melissa gave me space to validate all my emotions, but always left me with uplifting thoughts and sometimes "homework" assignments that helped me clarify my needs & express them to drs. She has always answered when I have reached out to her, because with cancer & it's treatments, ordinary things can become a crisis. With Melissa guiding me, I didn't look back, but instead looked forward, trying to find the joy in little things when the big picture became too much. I am so thankful that she is in my life, truly." -S.F.
