Anyone who has been through cancer knows that it doesn't only affect the physical body. It touches every dimension of a human being. It impacts the mind, heart, and spirit, often as deeply—if not more deeply—than it impacts the physical body.
As an oncologist, I understand that people who are diagnosed with cancer—even at a very early stage—are often shaken to the core of their being. Many seek deeper meaning and understanding of their lives while also searching for comfort and healing.
