      Before both cancer experiences (breast in 2013 and ovarian in 2016), I wish I had known how to eat healthy, especially to stay away from all harmful artificial ingredients that made food & drinks taste great, e.g. asparthame, MSG, GMO, excess sugar, etc. I wish I had known that having proper sleep habits was critical to my health, so I wouldn't take it for granted. I wish I had known how to counter the many stressors at work with prayer, guided imagery meditation, exercise and healthy eating habits. I wish I'd known about the wonderful integrative healthcare practices that truly complement modern medicine, like acupuncture, anti-cancer nutrition, qi gong, chi-nei-tsang massage, essential oils, cbd, yoga and natural healing nutrition. I wish I had known how to navigate life while going through cancer treatments, so I would be better prepared, especially emotionally and mentally.

      That the so called "cure" leaves you feeling like you've had the life sucked right out of you. That when you're "done" with treatment you are, in fact, just beginning a journey like nothing you've ever experienced.

      Hindsight for me certainly would cover several chapters if written. I suppose, why did I live so long before I knew better of chances that could swallow my life...
