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.

imageSterling - What a long strange trip it's been (10 Year scan)  Well, 10 years have passed and I'm praying this is the last scan.  I am not quite sure why they wanted to follow me for so long after such aggressive treatment for papillary thyroid cancer (Surgical removal, followed by I-131 ablation). Went through a week of the low iodine diet (almost can't eat anything).  Then had to do the bowel prep.  Had the I-131 whole body scan today and my gut still isn't back to normal.  Got to say the folks … more…

imageDana - First post  i've read a few other blogs and i appreciate them all.  I think the toughest thing for me is the continuing side effects. I'm more than 2 years post treatment and I can't get over how much my life is still impacted every day.  I'm getting pelvic floor PT for the anal pain and constriction from scarring and i'm seeing a urologist for unfortunate changes to my penis.  Things I either don't want to talk about with friends or they … more…

imageBen - Good News Status Report  Just about 4 years post treatment, and my most recent checkup confirms I'm still cancer free. I hope this is encouraging for other people going through this, because I was really scared about recurrence right after finishing treatment. I was told the treatment has a very high success rate, but it's very easy to let yourself worry. My body has recovered for the most part, at least 80 or 90 percent of the way there, but I still get tired … more…

imagePat C - It's 1 1/2 years on the road.  Picture 1 of ON THE ROAD! Traveled from PA to Wyoming with stops in Ohio, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska. Had a wedding in the mountains (still snow piled up from a June storm) on July 7. Stayed in Wyoming with the 'kids' until Mid August. Traveled to Granby CO, Colorado Springs, CO (with a real adventerous trip on US 40 over an 11.000 foot moutnain pass with my truck and 42 foot/16,000 pound 5th wheel) but the views were magnificant. Next, down … more…

imageRosemary - Present day, doing pretty good.   Like today iced tea and hot chocolate, both very rare for me and apple pie. That's a drawback for me on the holidays since I try to eat vegan. Results haven't been too bad. I did get some kind of bad cold and the medications were getting me screwed up. NyQuil, benedryl, Tylenol and black elderberry which I was taking a lot of because thought it was natural. But sure enough found out too much can affect blood sugar. Anyway … more…
