Greetings,
Dear Friend.

My sympathies are extended to those who have been diagnosed with cancer. I understand the pain you may be experiencing. It was discovered on August 11, 2022 that I was likely to have bilateral breast cancer, which was later confirmed. Due to this medical condition, I will be undergoing chemotherapy treatment, surgery, and likely radiation.

I would like to let you know that I am available (as my health permits) to provide you with support on your journey through cancer. To protect your immunity, sessions can be conducted virtually. In order to provide you with relief from your current situation, I would like you to know that you have someone to talk to about it.

During this time, you can use a variety of tools and strategies to reduce your anxiety. My prior experience as a medical Social Worker in health care has provided me with knowledge of the Saskatchewan health care system and the importance of advocating for one's own well-being while understanding, participating in, and navigating one's own health care within multidisciplinary medical teams. 


Being a patient myself who has been diagnosed with cancer, I would like to assure you that you are not alone - I am here to support you. Please reach out.

Much Love,
Shannon
