Mike Verano
It would be unrealistic to suggest that one is ever completely free of the shadow of cancer – after all, shadows are the direct result of light.
Mike Verano
I often joke in training classes on aging that with every new candle on my birthday cake, a new medicine bottle shows up in my cabinet.
Mike Verano
As people who have "been there, done that," our very presence provides a new arrival on the cancer rollercoaster a sense of stability and certainty.
Mike Verano
Waiting to hear if one’s blood is showing any signs of the monster’s return has never been easy.
Mike Verano
Cancer has taught me to be stoic when necessary, needy when appropriate and mindful at all times that the physical body is both fragile and resilient.
Mike Verano
As any cancer survivor is aware, the blossom of hope can be a fragile flower.
Mike Verano
It appears that we survivors have, at long last, been taken seriously about our reports of problems with mental functioning as a result of chemotherapy.
Mike Verano
When I think of living in cancer's shadow, my mind immediately jumps to the dark body that is my constant companion and seems to, paradoxically, grow stronger the brighter the light.
Mike Verano
I guess I’m old school when it comes to a cancer diagnosis. I have always assumed there are three types of cancer—the good (which is a diagnosis of “no cancer”), the bad and the ugly.
Mike Verano
That cancer strikes at the very fabric of one’s understanding of why things happen the way they do is what makes this illness so insidious.
