Karen’s reminder to be brave was on a bracelet she wore after chemo was over. It’s a reminder that even after a patient is “finished” with treatment, the journey is rarely over. Fears of relapse, “scanxiety,” and daily differences can impact quality of life and mental health.
Facing these new challenges as they come and finding a reason to smile – maybe at the small “be brave” bracelet on your wrist – is bravery at its finest.
