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.

imageBen - 18 Months Post-Treatment - Update  I saw my doctor a couple weeks ago, about a year and a half after finishing chemotherapy and radiation, and continue to have good results. The CT scan shows no obvious cause for worry, and there's no sign of the tumor coming back. They've decided I only need to come back on a 6-months basis instead of a check-up every 3 months. Letting the leash out a bit seems like a very good sign to me. And I won't need … more…

imageLarissa - Whoosh...journal November 14 2020      This year has not been the year many of us were hoping for.  Not only facing a world wide pandemic and political upheaval many of us add our own health and mental crisis, employment loss, isolation anxiety, childcare issues and educational concerns for our kids and grandkids.  There are so many worries in our world it is impossible to truly list or wrap our minds around the enormity of it all.   I have mostly been quiet, tip toeing around 2020 in … more…

imageDale - 10 Years Ago Today  It was 10 years ago on this exact day that I was introduced to the most wretched, horrid thing on this planet, Cancer. It started as a small dull ache in my gut. Unfortunately for me, it happened just after the Canadian Thanksgiving. I went to see the doctor, and statistically, it made sense that it should have been from all the excessive eating and drinking from the weekend (bacteria or what-not from the turkey). I gave it a couple … more…
