What is Otherwise Healthy?

“I’m afraid it’s cancer.” Four of the most terrifying words a person will ever hear. What goes through your mind? Everything. Nothing. A gripping fear of possible pain, disfigurement, even death. How can one deal with this diagnosis and still care for a family, manage a household, maintain a job and live life the way you did before those words were spoken? Many people find it incredibly difficult to organize the various aspects of their lives when they are not facing a crisis. When confronted with a life-altering disease such as Breast Cancer, it can be virtually impossible. Otherwise Healthy was conceived in response to this problem. Fashioned after a daily planner, its pages, called Focusheets®, are worksheets designed to help you gather and document the right information to negotiate this journey, interspersed with text consisting of specific advice, anecdotal stories, humor and encouragement. Otherwise Healthy makes it easy to consolidate pertinent information into one book that is easily transportable and always available. The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation Albany Race For the Cure® awarded Otherwise Healthy a grant to fund the initial printing, thereby enabling area medical oncologists and surgeons to distribute it free of charge to their patients.
