Being diagnosed with cancer “Daniel’s Perspective”

Everything slowly sinks in when you’re told your diagnosis, and everyone takes it differently. They take it either with denial or with acceptance. No matter how you take it, you will gradually learn to accept it over time.


At first, it started with denial for me. I wanted to believe it was something else, and I stayed that way until I started to lose my hair. That’s when I realized that I was wrong. It was cancer, and I needed to just accept it. When I did finally accept it, I felt a lot better because that’s when I started asking questions and opening up to my doctors. At the end of the day, it’s better to just open up and understand than to deny what you’ve been told. -Daniel Mathis, Cancer Warrior
