At YES!CON, they stood by us as a strong partner in a joint photo campaign. In this video, one of six women whose stories are worth telling introduces herself. With scars that are worth showing and worth seeing. Authentic and unique. Combative and strong.

Uta

Durch die Krankheit hat sie in ihrem Leben aufgeräumt und viele neue Erkenntnisse gewonnen.

Ende 2017 bekam Uta die Diagnose Liposarkom. Heute sagt sie: „So viel ist in den letzten Jahren passiert, so viel hat sich verändert. Und so viel Schönes und Gutes ist entstanden.“ Viele Operationen, Strahlentherapie, Komplikationen, Verlust von Muskel, Knochen und teilweise Organen, Schmerzen, Verzweiflung, Angst, Hoffnungslosigkeit, Einsamkeit. Uta: „Ich bin in dieser Zeit gewachsen, habe vieles über mich gelernt, mein Leben und vor allen Dingen mich selbst reflektiert, in meinem Leben aufgeräumt, mich weiterentwickelt, habe viele Erkenntnisse gewonnen, bin dankbar und demütig geworden, habe meinen Blickwinkel auf viele Dinge geändert, meine Stärken richtig eingesetzt und bin glücklich. Mein Leben ist jetzt anders, aber anders heißt ja nicht schlechter. Anders ist einfach nur anders.“

Aktuell ist Uta tumorfrei. Sie stärkt Körper und Geist, trainiert, baut Muskeln auf, damit sie wieder mobiler wird, macht Ausdauertraining: „2 bis 4 mal pro Woche trainiere ich und finde es ganz wunderbar zu sehen, wie sich alles prima entwickelt, mein Körper heilt und wieder stark wird. Diese Fortschritte sind für mich eine große Motivation. Auch die Fortschritte in meiner Therapie sind großartig. Ich bin wieder so stabile und mit mir „im Reinen“, dass ich meine Therapie nun beenden werde, beenden kann. Ich komme mit mir selbst gut zu recht.“

Der Wunsch von Uta ist: „Vielleicht kann ich dem ein oder anderen Erkrankten mit meinen Worten etwas Mut und Hoffnung schenken. Das würde mich sehr freuen.“

„Mein Leben ist jetzt anders, aber anders heißt ja nicht schlechter.“
