Living Beyond Breast Cancer

Great advice, Wendy! It's important to remember that hospice is not set in stone and there is always hope at any stage iof treatment.


Congratulations on publication in the New York Times. It seems difficult to accept that the two positions can live harmoniously side-by-side. 1) Accepting what may be the likely outcome and 2) Hoping that things can improve. But, we are unusual creatures on earth that find ways for negative and positive forces to join as one.


Wendy S. Harpham, M.D.

I was an adult before someone introduced me to the notion of holding opposite feelings in harmony.

Of course, we all know this truth subconsciously. Growing up, we love and hate a sibling. Hesitating at the top of a ski slope, we both desire and fear the risky run.

But it was only as an adult that I was taught to recognize the confluence of opposites and to appreciate its gifts.

With hope, Wendy
