Your attitude can directly influence your recovery. In fact, many survivors consider attitude to be a fundamental contributor to their healing.

Choose a Positive Mindset

Survivors believe there is a very real mind-body connection. They refuse to accept that cancer means death. They have confidence in their treatments and their own power to influence their recovery.

These attitudes result in a more positive outlook. Survivors focus on healing, not just on fighting the disease. They choose their emotional response and stay optimistic that they will get well.

Eight in 10 survivors believe personal self-help efforts played a major role in their recovery. Explore our resources that help patients benefit from a positive state-of-mind.

    December 1, 2017

    No doubt about it, the holiday season can be a fun and joyful time of year, but it can also pose its own special challenges. Parties and get-togethers, shopping, traveling to visit friends and relatives – you name it – the list goes on and on.
