What Our Patients are Saying
The following testimonial is from Patou, a patient who received counseling from the Tough Enough to Wear Pink Counseling Center:
“I sought out the program after I had finished my chemo in March of 2021, but my journey with cancer actually began in 2012. In 2012 I lost my best friend to cancer. We were running and exercise partners, talked daily on the phone, attended all of our children’s events together and helped each other at our children’s births. In July of 2012 she was given two months to live. This was my first experience with a deep and life altering loss. In 2016 I lost my mom to cancer and my 15-year-old nephew’s leukemia resurfaced. The following year I lost my sister to cancer. In December of 2018 my other sister [CoCo] was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent a bilateral mastectomy and six months later her son died of leukemia at 17.
We all experience loss, but I had experienced so much loss in such a short amount of time that when I received my breast cancer diagnosis in 2020, I was not in a healthy emotional state to deal with it properly. I was detached from my breast cancer and my mastectomy emotionally and approached it very clinically as just one more cancer that had to be dealt with. Unfortunately, I had become an expert at cancer and caretaking and approached my cancer as a caretaker instead of as the patient.
It was during my chemo and a global pandemic that I realized that I needed help in understanding and dealing with my cancer experience. Having to go through a cancer diagnosis, a bilateral mastectomy with a DIEP flap and chemo in the midst of an isolating pandemic was tough. I sought out the Tough Enough to Wear Pink Counseling Program because its sole mission is to help cancer patients navigate all the travails of their cancer. My counselor has provided a very safe and nurturing environment for me to explore the tools she has taught me. Some of these tools have challenged me in how I’ve thought of myself and others have encouraged me to be kinder to myself.
A cancer diagnosis is life altering and many things change, the least of these being physical. I encourage anyone with a cancer diagnosis to seek out the Tough Enough to Wear Pink Counseling Program. It takes courage to reach out and seek change, but the person you will be on the other side is a better version of the person you are now.”
