“Turning my setback into a comeback”

– Sally Ann Nisberg

Author's Note

A Word From Sally

There’s nothing fair about breast cancer and no one deserves it.

The reality is, we are immediately afraid, uncertain, and angry toward the unknown. Cancer’s threat is challenging to say the least, yet we all have POWER because we have a CHOICE. In each moment we can choose what we think, what we do!

“I’m afraid”, “I’m stuck” and “I’m going to die” were not going to be on my most played list throughout my treatment as I fought for my life. I’ve sat alongside amazingly strong survivors at radiology clinics, hospital admitting areas, Chemotherapy centers and oncology offices. Every step of treatment, recovery and survival requires tremendous strength. Successfully negotiating the process takes courage, humor and a large measure of patience, starting with some realistic expectations.

It’s not possible to “flip a switch”, heal and immediately live our life at full throttle. Our body and minds need to repair and we have to pace ourselves.

Cancer is Serious, Not Hopeless, I promise.

Our attitude, good or bad, dictates how challenges play out in our lives. I’m sharing my experience, writing this book as part of my commitment to help survivors find threads of strength in life, and a willingness to reach out and ask others for help.

We Breast Cancer alumnae can’t always begin to talk about the “worry” and all that lies deep within our gut below the buzz of fear. There is a little voice that roars in the back of our head from time to time. As a survivor, I hear this voice again and again. It only signals me to work even harder at remaining positive throughout my journey and my life. My hope is that a word, a sentence, a page in this book inspires you, the survivor, caregiver and professional to embrace this very moment, meet the challenge, choose not to suffer and “Live Like Crazy.”

Who can benefit…

Those who may find the most inspiration

LIFE’s sobering fact is it’s uncertainty and our presence upon this earth is a fleeting thing. I now know, more than ever, how fiercely life’s moments should be treasured.

The sting of learning we have breast cancer in some ways immobilizes us and interferes with our ability to act.

My objective now in writing this book is to help survivors and caregivers discover what is best for them, rather than to validate my own cancer battle and choices.

Every one of us who courageously faces cancer, not only has the ability to live a full life—but also the ability and right to live a life full of meaning.

When diagnosed we are drafted into a space that at times is beyond our control, yet we need to give ourselves permission to be comfortable with the information we gather, the professionals we rely on and the support we receive and the choices we need to make.

Breast cancer was a brief intermission in my life story. I did not allow it to change my theme and with time, to my surprise, I welcome making edits to my life.

It is courage in identifying ourselves, knowing who we are, what we believe in and where we want to go that ultimately delivers clarity and boundless energy in LIVING LIFE, not CHASING IT.
