As a cancer patient, your attitude can impact your healing progress just as much as your actual treatment. By staying informed, you can be a reactive patient rather than a submissive sufferer. You are responsible for your treatment, so take charge and make sure you know what your health provider gives you. I also recommend bringing the Siegel kit with you to the clinic, which includes a magic marker, noise maker, water gun, and sign kit. These tools will allow you have fun during your stay and to be safe and in control. Finally, surround yourself with a support group of loved ones who will encourage and give you the confidence to be healed.
