We are Alive ... Period!

Type: 
Support groups
Description: 

Come meet us! We are 5, 8, 10+ year long-term cancer survivors. Nobody in the world understands better than we do - where you are & what you need. Learn from long-term survivors. If we can do it, so can you!

Long-term cancer survivors (LTCS) mystify the medical profession because they don’t know how to duplicate the results. 

Motivational theory behind our group - On May 6, 1954, Roger Bannister broke the 4 minute mile. That meant he ran 1,760 yards in under 4 minutes. Prior to that date, for thousands of years, people tried to push themselves to run as fast as possible. Experts suggested that the human body had limitations; that we had found the limits of the body and could not expect to achieve a 4 minute mile. Yet, in 1940 the mile record was set and held at 4:01 for nine years...until Bannister came along. Once Bannister broke the 4 minute mile, others began to run under 4 minutes as well. Bannister held the record for only 46 days. Today it is common place for professional runners to run a mile under 4 minutes. What happened to the expert’s theory of our body’s limitations?

So here's the deal, since others have survived a high risk and at times a late stage cancer such as ovarian cancer, could we begin to look at their examples of survival as our own possibility? Could we begin to make survival as commonplace as breaking the 4 minute mile? Would you agree that the simple act of observing and interacting with long-term survivors is worth a try? If you were faced with the grim statistics of cancer, would you want to know that someone has overcome these grim statistics? Don't you want to become a stat-buster by outliving cancer?

We meet monthly, 4th Wednesday of each month, at a tea house, Zen Tea in Chamblee, Georgia and we are making things happen to grow to more locations too! This group is different than anything that has ever been done before...it's all about long-term survivors - letting all cancer patients know and see that long-term cancer survivors do exist. Our motto is "If we can do it, then so can you."
