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.

imageLarissa - Let it go...journal 1/19/19  Let it go....journal January 19 2019   We live in a society where many days we feel as if we are just hanging on by a thread.  Deadlines, expectations, quotas, home decor, fashion and even the persona of our well being have us pushing ourselves into stress induced breakdowns. The body and mind can only handle so much before the overload shows what damage it is causing.  Forgetfulness, anxiety, depression, aches, pains, headaches can lead to breaking the body down and allowing bigger … more…

imageMichele - Don't Wake Me  Life has been such a whirl wind lately. I feel like taking care of myself, in all my “long term side effect” glory, has become a full-time job in itself. I have been in some type of physical therapy since August of 2017. That alone sounds like enough for anybody, but as you know I have been dealing with sciatica, hip problems, digestive issues and girl trouble that I don’t even want to delve into right now, plus this pesky area that … more…

My doctor's response when I asked him about it was "I have to give you a dilator after treatment..."  Like given a choice, he would not.  And the … more…
