Without a doubt, my life has been changed significantly!  As a result, I’ve decided to communicate with others who are also experiencing the life-changing journey of positively coming to grips with the many challenges of cancer.

hangout_snapshot_36Hi… I’m Dave, the Host of the Find Your New Normal live video broadcast and my own cancer story started in March 2013. Like most of us learning that cancer had become our partner, my journey began with shock and fear and quickly moved into anxiety and uncertainty along with constant high levels of stress.

However, I quickly discovered that much of my emotional reaction could have been minimized if I had had access to more information about what to expect. It also became clear that I needed to learn NOT to plan to return to my previous “normal” life. Instead, I needed to create a new normal of how to live.

Therefore with the help of a group of gifted advisors, I’ve decided that perhaps I can help others by communicating what I’ve learned, while bringing together a community to share their own experiences. My goal is to use the live broadcast, blog and training program provided by a variety of cancer coaches, to offer content that provides practical tips and advice for patients and caregivers as they adjust to the impact of cancer in their lives.

Please subscribe to our notification list, join us for our weekly, live video broadcast and share in the support offered by members of our community. I look forward to interacting with you as you receive meaningful guidance of what to do when faced with the stress and emotions that affect your treatment and recovery program.
