Navigating your cancer journey

Cancer is a challenge for the patient and for caregivers. I’ve been through extensive treatments for three different cancers (though the third came up shortly after I made this video) and have some things to share. I pray that this will encourage you and help you navigate through challenging times, whether cancer-related or not. Don’t waste your cancer or any other challenge.

Be blessed!

Note 1: I misspoke around the 46-minute mark. I was thinking of how we don’t have an entitlement to get medical care and the doctors and staff don’t have an obligation to provide it, but accidentally said that I don’t have an obligation to it. Hopefully, everyone could see past my conflation!

Note 2: I forgot to mention that “Chemo Brain” is a real thing, where you become forgetful at times and can have trouble thinking clearly. I’ll blame it on the chemo brain.

Here’s a link to the Story of Reality book that I mentioned.

P.S. Feel free to leave comments if you want me to pray for you.

  1. Great video! I especially liked your points about what to pray for (not just for complete remission but also for clear decisions, peace for the patient and caregivers, etc.). I am glad you are doing well, and I will continue to pray for you and all other cancer patients / survivors / caregivers.

  2. Neil, I’m glad your doing much better brother. May God continue to strengthen you and your wife and loved ones.

    Thanks for sharing your journey. I’d love to watch a follow up video on your daily routine these days: how does your day to day look like, what’s your diet, exercise, etc.

    1. Thanks so much! Interesting idea on the follow-up video. I’ll put that on my list. I’ve been thinking about doing a fitness series as well.

      How have you been? So great to hear from you. Are you still blogging? Your kids must be in high school by now, right?
