LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:
With the summer heat ramping up and pools opening for the season, Cancer Wellness is also making waves with Issue 15’s cover star, Nathan Adrian. Read about his journey with testicular cancer and how cancer never stopped him from doing what he loves and giving back (p. 44).
This is our annual Men’s Health issue, and it’s full of resources and support tailored specifically for men. I am also excited to highlight the Movember Foundation, a leading nonprofit that is changing the face of men’s health with its groundbreaking strides in prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health and suicide prevention (p. 36).
We are also so grateful to the cancer community for allowing us to feature yet another article all about our readers (p. 42). This time, we asked, “What do you wish your doctors understood about the cancer journey?” The responses we received were eye-opening and will help strengthen doctor-patient relationships when it comes to the cancer care continuum.
Speaking of doctors, we also want to shed light on the tremendous work that so many doctors and oncologists are doing for cancer warriors, while also empowering you to choose the doctor that is the best fit for your health and needs. Sarah DiMuro’s thought-provoking article examines the hard truths of breaking up with an oncologist in order to find one who better suits your journey (p. 24).
I hope this summer brings you time to travel, relax and be with your loved ones. Let this season be one of warmth and light. And happy reading!
