After Dana Muir, a professor of business law at the U-M Ross School of Business, was diagnosed with breast cancer, it was rough to wait to find out how far her cancer had progressed. That's when she found out about the Cancer Center's Guided Imagery Program. Guided Imagery helps to activate the right side of the brain, which gives rise to creativity and signals the release of the body's biochemicals that aid in relaxation and healing.

Are you looking for better ways to cope with cancer? For more way to feel more in control? Or maybe just someone to talk to who gets what you're going through? The U-M Cancer Center opens new patient and family center to help you get the information you need in order to cope with your cancer.

We interviewed Sallie Foley, director of the University of Michigan Center for Sexual Health, about the impact of cancer and ways to regain a sense of normalcy in the bedroom. Foley is the co-author of "Sex Matters for Women: A Complete Guide to Taking Care of Your Sexual Self" and author of the "Modern Love" column in AARP The Magazine
