How to Calm the Quiet

When most of us think of the word “quiet” we think of peace and tranquility, right? When you have cancer, or any other illness for that matter, quiet brings on a new meaning. It is the solitude of your illness. Well, what does that mean? you might ask.

Here is the thing about having cancer. You can be in a room full of people who love you, talk to you, cheer for you and are just plain THERE for you but, you alone are with your cancer.

A Trip to the Beach

We all have our insecurities and perhaps I’m mentioning the beach bit now - in the middle of winter no less - because I just got back from a beach vacation. No one wants to run full-on Bo Derek down the sandy edge of the ocean after eating Thanksgiving dinner, Christmas cookies and all the penne a la vodka in between. In this case, we are talking about me. Or are you in this scenario also? Read the full article as published in BIZCATALYST 360°  HERE!

What is it like to be diagnosed with cancer?

People often ask me, “What is it like to be diagnosed with cancer?” My mother used to tell me that just about anything was better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. After having been diagnosed with cancer, I can say with complete confidence that this is debatable. The best way to get inside my head, and probably that of any other cancer patient, is to read a snippet of my book, "How Connie Got Her Rack Back”, here: Chapter 1 - THE NEWS.

Testimonials

  • I received a phone call today from a woman who two days ago felt helpless. She was having trouble making ends meet and had limited money for gas. She travels far for her cancer care. There are very limited facilities where she lives. Yesterday she received an envelope from GYRB. It was filled with gift cards for food, gas, etc. She cried happy tears to me...

    -Diane, Nurse Navigator, Saratoga Springs, NY
  • ...She asked, “how could a stranger want to help me?” I answered, “well that’s what Connie and GYRB are all about!” Connie, God Bless you for being you and God Bless Get Your Rack Back!

    -Diane, Nurse Navigator, Saratoga Springs, NY
  • How can I possibly thank you for such an incredibly generous and thoughtful gift?! I so appreciate you thinking of me and for your encouraging words as well (including your book which I loved that was given to me by a friend). You definitely can relate which makes all of this even more special. So thank you from the bottom of my heart. The gift cards are absolutely helpful and just nice.

    -Toni, Fort Edward, NY
  • ...With the travel from Chadwicks to Saratoga, and the price of gas and groceries, my children and I have found that your gifts of love were of greater value than you will ever understand...

    -Kari, Chadwicks, NY
  • Your generous, kind and unexpected gift left me speechless with emotion and deep gratitude. I apologize for not reaching out sooner, but I have recently been going through a difficult time. Thank you for helping to soften the pain. Thank you for doing what you do with courage and grace.

  • I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your gift of gift cards this Christmas. These gifts have come as a tremendous assistance to my little family through these very difficult times. I am doing my best to support my son, who is 5 years old and my daughter who is 4 years old...

    -Kari, Chadwicks, NY
  • Just wanted to let you know how much your help has assisted me in my recovery. The financial and emotional support has been so much more than you will ever know. These are such special people who work and volunteer to help people – those of us dealing with cancer diagnosis and recovery – who will never truly understand how much they contribute to our recovery and peace of mind...

    -Lisa, Ballston Spa, NY
  • I am the oncology MSW at Saratoga Hospital and I was able to deliver a generous check to my patient to help her cover her medical expenses for her cancer treatments. She was so overwhelmed with gratitude and asked me “why would they help me?” I told her because Connie has been there and she knows what you are going through...

  • ...Reducing the monetary stress is such a relief and makes it easier to focus on just getting through your treatment and getting better. Thank you and please express my appreciation to all the groups that provide so much support and lessen the pain of cancer.
