                    Guided Imagery Therapy is a wonderful alternative for patients of all care, especially for those who sit for hours in the Infusion Chair receiving chemo. I discovered the art of listening to guided imagery through the headset calms the mind,body and spirit through the softness of voice and sounds. It is therapy. I can speak out loud about this alternative therapy because I pracitce this  art while I sit in the i...

                      I tuned 60 in May and learned a month later that I have recurrence of breast cancer in the same location. 2002 the mammo detected a tiny tiny cancerous tumor (early detection!) I was not aware that a recurrence can be very sneaky. In 1998 as usual had my annual mammo/clean/ six months later I felt stabbing pain in the left breast and got doctor's order for a sonogram for a deeper look & only saw scar tissues from previous removal od the small tumor. I wish I knew to have asked for an MRI! This early June 2010 I had an MRI of th left breast and detected a 2cm tumor. It is scary to know that I knew on a deeeper level that something very wrong was goinng on in my body. I recently had the PET scan it detected two liver lesions, plus something suspicious in my bone! Bone scan yesterday and the verdict on Monday the 19th of July. I wonder how many of us are unaware to ask the docor for an MRI order? I have great heath insurance as well.
