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.

imageApril - Three Years Later  Hello everyone!   Our dear friend John had suggested a while ago that I write about how things are going post-chemo.   I decided that my three year anniversary of my first chemo would be a good day to do it.    I reread my posts last night and today and I had forgotten so much about that "adventure".   Chemo sucks!   Anyway, I have a great ability to live in denial so my life is pretty much back to normal.  Every now … more…
