Ferrybank resident Maria Quilty works as a volunteer at the Solas Centre, which offers relaxation techniques to deal with the stress of a cancer diagnosis. Despite the chemotherapy and radiation, Quilty feels that attending the Solas Centre and continuing to engage in positive activities helped her get back to her new normal.
Quilty doesn't like the term "battling cancer." She notes that it is something to live with and to work hard to outlive. She felt the best way to handle her diagnosis and treatment was to move about life as normally as she could.
