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.

imageMerrill - CBD Oil for Diarrhea Flare Ups?  I've had Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) since my 20s but it was made much worse by my anal cancer treatment. I was diagnosed Stage 3A in 2008 and NED by 2010. Since then I've been plagued with bouts of severe diarrhea. Lomotil can help somewhat when I have a flare up, but it's not ideal. Have any of you tried CBD oil? Thanks! … more…

imageLily - Update - Kelly is almost 2 weeks post-treatment  She made it.  I could have said she made it through with flying colors had it not been for a very significant screw up by the pharmacy at the cancer clinic.  Long story short, they mistakenly dispensed dexamethasone to be taken twice a day every day instead of twice a day on Day 1 only of her chemo treatment.  This was not caught for 10 days.  By this time her esophagus was so inflamed she could not eat or drink.  She … more…
