Change is a transformation, a shift in course.  The words welcoming and resisting often precede the word change, as change itself is neutral. Change can be both good and bad. Changes are impossible to avoid with a cancer diagnosis. There are many physical and psychological changes, changes in priorities, perspective, attitude, outlook, and changes in those around you.  Are you a different person, how so? Are there positive as well as negative changes? Do you see changes in your loved ones?
