Career , Academia , give up? Or persevere

Hi warriors! Hope you’ve all been well. This year I started a new job a big consulting firm and I also got accepted into the masters program at my university with goals of eventually getting my PhD. However, I was diagnosed in May and not sure if I should change my plan or not. Does anyone want to share a similar story or give some advice around this? I don’t want to let this disease defeat me but I also don’t want to be naive …

If it was me, I would pursue my dreams. Do not give up, if you came this far you can do it! Look at the bright side, when your done and have your PhD you can research MD :-)


I would pursue your dreams. Nobody can predict the course of their disease, or how it will affect your abilities in the future. Good luck with the PhD! xxx
