Questions on Your Cancer Diagnosis?

Do you have a quick question on how to deal with some part of your cancer diagnosis? Post your questions here in the community and someone has probably gone through it already and is happy to help. There are so many kind people who want to make it easier for the next cancer warrior going through this tough time.

Why Share Your Story?

Journaling about your battle with cancer is a great way to relieve stress. We can let go of some things after writing them down. Also, I found it helpful to keep track of what treatments and doctors I saw and on what dates.

As a bonus, it helps someone else to read what you are going through. And it feels good to help people.

What is Your Cancer Story?

Everyones path is a little bit different but by sharing your story someone else may benefit from knowing they are not alone in this path.
