Seminar Supports
Cancer Survivors

LESLIY PEARL STAFF WR TER

oanne Zuroff battled
breast and ovarian
cancer and won. Now
she wants to share
her knowledge and recov-
ery with other women
fighting the disease.
Recovery and Discovery:
A seminar for active,
recovering and recovered
cancer patients is her
vehicle.
Last week Ms. Zuroff,
six speakers and about 15
women met in Ms. Zuroff's
Farmington Hills home for
information and inspira-
tion.
Gathered in the living
room and munching on
cakes and drinking coffee,
the women talked infor-
mally before the presenta-
tion — commiserating
over the trials and tribu-
lations of medication,
chemotherapy and sup-
port.
Following a welcome
from Ms. Zuroff, Bernice
Gadon addressed the
group.
Ms. Gadon, a cancer
survivor holding a mas-
ter's degree in social work,
is the founder of
Celebration of Life, a
Detroit-based organiza-
tion which provides indi-
vidual and family counsel-
ing to cancer victims.
Six years ago, while
undergoing a hysterecto-
my, Ms. Gadon was diag-
nosed with ovarian cancer.
Her cancer was advanced,
known as stage four. Only
5 percent of patients in
stage four survive.
"I never doubted I would
make it; I just worried
about the quality of my
life," Ms. Gadon said.
It improved. In the heal-
ing process Ms. Gadon
developed what she calls a
more balanced lifestyle.
And she developed a new
belief system.
"Love yourself exactly
as you are — focus on
what you have and not
what you don't," Ms.
Gadon said. "Learn to live
with change and uncer-
tainty. And develop a pur-
pose which brings you
pleasure."
Ms. Gadon did all of
those. She learned to
appreciate the little, mun-
dane events in life that
individuals tend to take

j

for granted. She lived
through two recurrences
of cancer and fulfilled her
lifelong dream of owning a
home on the water.
Questions and corn- ,1
ments followed, with some
women needing to share ,;
their experiences, others
voicing concern about
leaving a legacy for their
daughters.
Ms. Zuroff read excerpts
from her yet-to-be-pub-
lished book, Once Upon A ll
Tumor, a Bright Look at a
Woman's Dark Days With
Cancer.
Written in fairy tale-
form, Once Upon A Tumor
is the story of Ms. Zuroff's
experiences — going from
a vital adult to a "bald,
pale princess," and back
again.
Ms. Zuroff also dis-c=
cussed her experiences

Once Upon
a Tumor
is the story
of Ms. Zuroff's
experiences
fighting
cancer.

writing for the Southfield <
Eccentric during her ill-
ness. As a local columnist, 1
she frequently let the com-
munity know how she was,
dealing with cancer. 1
"People called me, with
stories, advice, questions.
I think I gained as much 1
from them as they did
from me," Ms. Zuroff said. j
Also speaking were
Chanie Snow of Chanie's,
Beauty Salon in Oak
Park, who showed wigs; ,
Amy Regal of Maquiage in
Farmington Hills, who
addressed the issue of cos-
metics; Idit Nadel showed:
snoods as an option for
women with hair loss; and'
Annette Newman of j
Annette's Mastectomy
Boutique in Sterling*
Heights discussed shop-
ping for and fitting a pros
thesis.
All the presenter c;="
focused on looking good as
an aid to feeling better. ❑
