Alex Tene, Denmark

“I only found out about my diagnosis when I was almost done with my treatment. I haven’t heard anyone pronouncing the word “cancer”… Thus, right from the beginning, everyone around me kept reminding me how much longer I have to be in the hospital and somehow, all of a sudden, my problem had an expiration date before I even have had time to comprehended what is ”it” that I’m facing. Even when I was in my worst times I kept thinking “I only have to face this for a while, just a bit more…” What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, right? For me “stronger” meant to try to study in a foreign country, start my own projects and companies to hopefully become financially independent. Now, 9 years later, I am a university graduate in Denmark, running 2 businesses and on the way of releasing my first book “The Cancer Paradigm.”
