Domestic/Intimate Partner Violence is a Cancer

Cancer patients and domestic violence: More common than you might think | MD Anderson Cancer Center


I am a cancer survivor. For almost 5 years, I have survived Ovarian Cancer. I never worried about it too much when it was diagnosed. I was sure I would be completely cured and I am. However, lingering effects from the Cancer treatment is still prevalent and will be for the rest of my life. I suffer pain, daily.

I am a dv/ipv survivor. I am away from the situation, the violence. However, like my cancer treatments and lingering effects, the pain and trauma will linger on for the rest of my life. Not because of a choice not to move on, but because of the life-tapes of unworthiness, unloved, etc. that was played over and over for years. The cancer of the abuser has been removed but the lingering effects live on and must be fought for the rest of my life.

I ran upon this great article above, a great read from a medical professional.
