Susan living proof a positive attitude can help battle cancer
In spite of the great advances made in treatment, many people still regard a diagnosis of cancer as a death sentence. The astonishing and uplifting story of Susan Oliver in this newspaper today should give those with cancer renewed hope. She was diagnosed in 2003, and was told four years ago she only had 18 months to live, but she has a six-year-old daughter in spite of intensive treatment for her rare form of the disease.
Susan is living proof that a positive attitude can work wonders even in the direst of situations and can make the predictions of the most experienced doctors seem wildly pessimistic. She is a beacon of hope.
