I am posting this perk from sunny Florida, compliments of my sister, Lynette and her generous husband, Jeff. This surprise vacation could not have come at a better time. It allows me to recoup after my chemo treatments, and prepare me both mentally and physically for my up-coming mastectomy. While my colleagues in Canada are trudging to work through several feet of snow, I am lounging by the pool, soaking up the rays, with a warm breeze blowing through my stubble. That is one of the perkiest perks of having cancer!
Tip: There is nothing like a good dose of sunshine to lift your spirits when you are undergoing cancer treatments. If you are not able to fly off to a sunny destination, make like a cat and curl up in a sunny location in your house.
