Women are expected from a young age to be nurturers, often at the expense of their own health. I believe that cancer, particularly breast cancer, is sending women the message that they must learn to nurture themselves first.
My friend, Anne Dewhirst, is a breast cancer survivor.
Appreciating that she needs to nurture herself, Anne is planning an extended vacation in sunny La Penita, Mexico! But, the nurturer in Anne is still there. She can't just relax on the beach without doing for others first. That's Anne!
