Should Breast Cancer Be The Focus? A Survivor’s Journal Entry

October 8, 2014 | Awareness (Week/Month), Community

Journaling a few years later, I can see how many “healthstyle” changes I’ve made since my doctor first talked with me about getting a mammogram. Without her guidance, my life may have looked very different. Although, the focus is breast cancer and should be, I became aware of how my overall health and well-being impacts the people I care about: my family, friends and co-workers.

My initial reaction to those words, “You have breast cancer,” was similar to the song, “Live Like You Were Dying.”  Imagine my doctor’s surprise when she got the call the next day that I had broken my ankle roller-skating with my ten-year-old son.  Thankfully, my doctor talked me through it and helped me regain focus on a better approach to coping. The next steps would be:

  1. Understanding my diagnosis (Not believing what I read on the Internet or comparing my breast cancer to anyone else’s case)
  2. Talking to the team of physicians about treatment options and my care
  3. Taking each day one day at a time, which is really all any of us can do on any given day. Note to self:  Bull-riding for 8 seconds or roller-skating is not the best response, unless you already do those activities on a routine basis.
Finding My Healthstyle

Through the experience though, I learned of health and lifestyle behaviors, which I like to call my “healthstyle,” that contribute to my overall health and can be risk factors or can be managed for prevention of things like diabetes, heart disease, strokes and cancer.  I took a hard and very personal look at my responsibility with diet and exercise and joined activities and groups to start making small changes, and to support me when I have setbacks or need to refocus.

An Ally for Healing

My motivation has been faith, family, friends and co-workers.  They would do small things to help me along on days when they knew I needed it and for that, I will be forever grateful.  The nursing and office staff held my hand and talked with me about my concerns and one physician got a wheelchair for me and insisted on rolling me in himself when he noticed me hobbling in the office with a broken ankle.  But, I guess my biggest motivator was when I told my kids about it and we discussed the importance of making changes in our “healthstyle.”  I explained that I had made similar changes to be my healthiest when I was pregnant with them and one of my children boldly asked, “Will you do that for us now?”  Wow! I was speechless.  What a profound request.  I can assure you it echoes in my thoughts each time I get frustrated with exercise and diet, and continues to motivate me over and over again.

And before I go without mentioning, I could not have done any of this without a great doctor’s office.  I am thankful for the resources they have in staff and the physicians at LeBauer. I always recommend LeBauer to friends and family when we talk about how to start defining a “healthstyle.”  They are so very caring and knowledgeable and are with you every step of the way.

As the official primary care team physician of the Carolina Dynamo, he brings patient safety to a new level. His passion for soccer and history in professional league play provides a unique advantage for the entire Dynamo team.

Smith is the sole sports medicine provider at LeBauer HealthCare in Greensboro, N.C., and plays an integral role in Triad medical community. Working with the Dynamo is his way of giving back, serving the city of Greensboro and making a tangible impact on its athletes. Smith was pleased with the healthy outcomes of the 2014 season. “We had a few bumps and bruises, but nothing major,” he explained. “Solid conditioning makes all the difference.”

As a primary care physician specializing in sports medicine, Smith can treat a large range of injuries and illnesses. When a player is feeling off, they are able to receive immediate treatment, ultimately leading to quicker diagnosis and resolution. Without a doubt, Smith’s presence keeps team performance at an all-time high. In the event of those inevitable spills, players can be splinted right on the field, and even receive an ultrasound if necessary.

Smith hopes to continue in this role for years to come. “I think the idea of having a team physician is really catching on in the athletic community,” he said. “It’s not just a trend – people are seeing that it is necessary.” Looking ahead, Smith and LeBauer Sports Medicine will seek further team partnerships, building valuable relationships and providing support for athletes across the region.
