I am a current stage 3 cancer and lupus patient. Towards the end of treatment. The toll both have taken on my health and body are devastating. I was once considered a beautiful woman but now I look in the mirror and don't know who I see. I have fought back from depression from both of pain and physical changes. Now trying to mend my mind, heart, soul and body. Trying to regain some of what this journey has taken from me. It goes without saying the financial toll that has been incurred for treatment and surgeries. I would like help to feel normal again and get on with my life. Especially being a single woman with now all the scars I bear. I have always been a proud person and never wanting to need or ask for help. However this new normal has changed the person I am, how I look at things, and knowing that it is not weakness to ask for help. It takes a stronger person to admit they have flaws and bare it all.
