For Sue Amyot, it’s not just a lifestyle, it is her life.
Amyot not only provides support for those who have gone through cancer, she has been through the painful disease.
“It’s my birthday today, “Amyot says.
Nine years ago, Amyot went through her first chemotherapy treatment.
But today, she is busy spreading all of the love and support she can to those who face the same painful disease.
“I’ve been through it and I’ve lived through it myself” Amyot said.
“I’ve suffered through the disease and I lost my husband to the disease,” Armyot said.
Today, Amyot provides a support group for those with cancer: a place where people in Fort St. James can understand and talk about the effects and feelings associated with cancer.
“It’s not just about talking about cancer. It’s about listening, socializing and caring about those who are and have dealt with cancer,” Armyot said.
Amyot provides a support group once every month in her home and has for the last nine years.
“I’ve done this for a while now. Anyone is welcome. We are here to listen. If you want to chat, share, spread some tears, or just listen, we are here and no one should have to go through this alone,” Amyot said.
The next cancer support group meeting will be held on Feb. 16.
