Dr. Rachel Naomi Remen states it well as, "Cancer can shuffle our values like a deck of cards...the bottom of our deck turns out to be the top card." Most breast cancer patients (and other forms) are knocked so far out of the daily grind they had fallen into prior to cancer, they have no choice but to reflect on life. When faced with possibility of dying, people receive many revelations about how they have lived.
