Are you Experiencing Breakthrough Pain?
Breaking Through: Voices of Breakthrough Pain in Cancer Patients TM (a project of Archimedes Pharma with the support of the Cancer Support Community)
wants to hear your opinion. Many people with cancer and cancer survivors who experience constant, background pain also experience episodes of sudden, severe pain that can occur without any apparent reason. Below is a link to a survey that will take between 10 and 15 minutes to complete. Your response to this survey will help in the development of educational programs that patients and oncologists will use to discuss and treat breakthrough pain. Make Your Voice Heard. Take the survey at: www.visioncriticalsurveys.com/skin/breakingthrough/CSC.html
Participation is entirely voluntary; your answers will be strictly confidential.
As a breast cancer survivor, you know that breast cancer is more than just treating the tumor, there are often emotional and social challenges to overcome as well. In fact, a recent survey showed that four out of five women experience distress due to a breast cancer diagnosis. The Wellness Community - Foothills recognizes that women who have faced breast cancer are more than patients, more than survivors and more than their breast cancer.
|On June 5, 2008, I was diagnosed with GE junction (gastro-esophageal) cancer. After choosing City of Hope for my treatments, I began a grueling chemotherapy, which then segued to a 9-hour surgical procedure. Despite all the chemo, the cancer was at Stage 4, and, following surgery I began a five week, five day a week radiation therapy, followed up by another three month return excursion into chemotherapy. I ended treatments in April 2009.
Most of you who are reading this are well aware of what I went through, and your love and support has meant the world to me. Following my diagnosis, a friend and cancer survivor put me in touch with the Pasadena chapter of The Cancer Support Community, or CSC-P.
