You may know her best as the wife of potential Republican Presidential Nominee: Mitt Romney.
Ann Romney has recently announced that if she were to become first lady, she'd support the fight against breast cancer and multiple sclerosis.
Romney says, "I have both MS and I've also had breast cancer, so that's sort of a double whammy, but I've met so many people across this country that have suffered from both."
Whether it is MS, another type of cancer, depression, divorce or the loss of a loved one? What's a person to do? An expert with the June E. Nylen Cancer Center in Sioux City says: get informed. Seek out financial and medical services that will best be able to facilitate you through recovery.
But the number one question to ask yourself?
Brenda Winkler, a Patient Navigator at the JUNCC says, "What kind of support do I need? What kind of support do I have available? Is my family enough for me? Do I need support of others who are experiencing similar ailments."
For Romney, it's her husband.
She says, "It's an experience we're going through together. Just being with each other makes it easier."
A solid support system will help motivate you to become a proactive patient instead of a passive one, says Winkler.
Winkler adds, "You know, not sitting back and waiting for others to give you what they think you need, but be willing to ask for what you need and what you are seeking."
Whether breast cancer is just one of the ailments you're currently dealing with or the only one, you can call Brenda Winkler at the Cancer Center, to help you on your path to recovery: 712-252-0088.
