It's Okay to Be Scared
Last updated: May 2023
We are encouraged to feel many amazing and empowering feelings from the moment we are diagnosed. We are told to be strong, keep fighting, keep our heads up, keep smiling, don't worry. But no one allows us to face our fear and even gives us permission to feel those feelings!
A champion in this fight
Listen, this journey is not easy; at times, it won't just be scary but terrifying. It is absolutely okay to be scared! You are still a champion in this fight!
