WHY I CREATED THE CANCER TREATMENT PLANNER
“I know exactly how terrifying a cancer diagnosis is and what it feels like to be inundated with complex information to process, terminology to learn, decisions to make, and schedules to coordinate. Three short years after brain surgery I was facing a cancer diagnosis. I had no choice but to create some type of order out of the chaos, so I began designing an organizational system for myself.
The more organized I became, the more grounded and in control I felt. I realized the benefits of my planner immediately and knew that it was something I needed to share with those that would be following me down this scary journey. I designed the Ready for Recovery Cancer Treatment Planner as a comprehensive and supportive tool to help walk patients and their caregivers through the entire process from initial diagnosis to recovery, no matter what their age, stage or treatment plan.“
