Veterinarian Daine Berdoldi, 39, a resident of São Bernardo, has just taken a book called Behind the Scar by Editora Ação Set, where she recounts her own path, starting with a hey 36-year-old professional who marries suddenly becomes a brain cancer patient, as if she hadn’t. If it wasn’t enough, the first medical team who saw her frustrated in advance.
Data from the National Cancer Institute (INCA) indicate that more than 11,000 new cases of brain cancer are diagnosed each year in Brazil, and they are the tenth and eleventh most common tumors in women and men, respectively. According to the latest update of the mortality atlas, 9,355 patients lost their lives due to the disease in 2020. Given the gravity of these numbers, this month is being remembered as “grey May” in order to raise awareness of this type of cancer, though worrying, if it is detected and treated in time , it can be overcome and without sequelae.
In her book, Dayne recounts how the turbulent discovery of a tumor in the early days of 2020 and the decision to cancel the wedding she had been planning for two years, by getting to know and accepting her body, trusting the complex had the surgery she underwent, for the determination during her recovery and for the fiancé’s partnership Then Marcus (to whom she dedicated the work, calling him her founder) pursued her dreams. After the first medical evaluation, who did not believe in her recovery, the vet underwent surgery and treatment and was able to perform the wedding – although she had recently had surgery and with infected stitches in her head – on the exact same day, where and how it had been planned from the start.
The writer also visualizes the endless sessions of radiotherapy followed by chemotherapy and its side effects, while partly returning to her routine. “Beyond the Scar” is an account of strength, overcoming and love, interspersed with moving testimonies from family, friends and professional partners, until finally arriving at Daiene today: cured, without sequelae, happy, resilient, married, full of plans and with her life completely and professionally normalized, with a medical follow-up Only semi-annual, as usual.
As intense as her journey here was, she began writing the book while still in the hospital, when she felt the need to leave a legacy to help others in similar situations. In one passage, she said that she realized, after the initial trauma, that the tumor needed to form a large mark to symbolize the new and greater of all landmarks, the watershed, and that this overcoming was only possible with the use of NLP, which she wields.
The degree of personal transformation requires a match with this sign. Resigning allowed me to regain control of the situation and not allow everything to be born again. Today I look upon my scar with pride, for it is a process full of pain, but equally beautiful and rich in meaning. Evolution is psychological, spiritual, physical and moral. I feel much stronger. If cancer is a dysfunction of me, produced by my body, why am I hiding the scar? Show her shamelessly. On the contrary, I know it encourages and inspires,” concludes Daiene.
