Jan's journey through a breast cancer diagnosis.
"The nurse handed me a folder and tucked neatly inside was my "Appointment Itinerary". Ah, finally, something in this cancer world I can relate too, something I am comfortable with! I can handle an itinerary! As overwhelming as it was to see the 10 already scheduled upcoming appointments listed I felt some immediate relief, a brief glimmer of excitement even. Having an “Itinerary”, means going on a wonderful trip! Of course I know in reality it is going to be a long and difficult journey."
