By Linda E. Carlson, Ph.D., R.Psych. and Michael Speca, Psy.D., R.Psych.

Rather than regret the past and worry about the future, mindfulness helps you live to your utmost potential in the present moment - the only moment that is guaranteed to any of us. 

 

How can you use mindfulness to help cope with cancer? Mindfulness-Based Cancer Recovery (MBCR) answers this question while guiding you through the creation of your own MBCR program at home. It explains the relationship between stress and cancer, how to use mindfulness to better manage common cancer-related symptoms, treatment side effects and the fear and anxiety that so often accompany a cancer diagnosis.

MBCR began as an in-person program at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre in Calgary, Canada to help patients cope with the daily stresses occurring during a cancer diagnosis, treatments and remission. These include uncertainty about the future, disruptions to daily routines and relationships, loss of control, fears of physical symptoms or functional losses resulting from the disease or its treatment. Research continues to show that the program leads to significant reductions in stress, anxiety, depression, sleep difficulties, fatigue, pain and fear of cancer recurrence and improvements in behavioral and cognitive coping, emotional stability and quality of life. By making the program available in book format, Linda Carlson and Michael Speca have enabled their program to reach even more cancer patients, giving them the gift of present moment awareness and quality of life that otherwise may have gone missing since their cancer diagnosis.
