“Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometime courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I will try again tomorrow.”

– Mary Anne Radmacher

Globally, in the month of October, we commemorate and bring attention to breast cancer. It’s quite likely that a substantial portion of our community is already aware that October is designated as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which reflects the successful efforts in elevating its prominence. The quote, “Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I’ll try again tomorrow,” holds great significance, not just at the outset of the breast cancer journey, but for many, this kind of courage remains essential for years. These words hold true in the context of managing lymphoedema, which often entails continuous progress, where each day marks a step in the right direction.

Lymphoedema practitioners play a crucial role in breast cancer management, and I encourage you to consider dedicating around 30 minutes this month to enhance your understanding of the latest developments in breast cancer management. Such insights may have an impact on the strategies you employ.
