In your everyday life, you probably deal with a loaded list of responsibilities and a relatively short window in which to fulfill them all. In my experience, this workload can lead to significant stress—not counting any stress in your home life—that results in sleepless nights, physical health concerns, and even mental health issues.
At some point in your life, you may sadly discover that your family member or friend has cancer. Even if you are not the one experiencing it yourself, I know firsthand that the indirect impact of this diagnosis can be truly taxing. As I acknowledge both Lung Cancer Awareness Month and, on the last day of November, Stomach Cancer Awareness Day, I urge you to understand how you can support those you care about through this trying time.
