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.

imageOdeta Stuikys - My life  I (Odeta Stuikys Rose) was born on December 5, 1985, in Rochester, New York.

It all started when my father Paul Stuikys Rose, who was mechanic, had a brain cancer. We tried everything to find a cure, but nothing worked. He passed out only eight months later. After my father’s death, my … more…

imageAlicia - Little Blessings  So a blessed thing happened to me today, and I believe you should recognize and appreciate the little miracles when they happen... I am wading through the financial ramifications of this diagnosis, and in trying to determine whether or not I should and could improve my outlook by upgrading my insurance policy.  It is really the last thing I want to be thinking of right now, but want to make the right decision, so I called our insurance agent who handles our … more…

image1 Very Palpable Hit - Cancer and Goal-Setting  A young researcher approached me today at the local regional cancer foundation, where I have been participating in cancer-supporting yoga classes. She asked me and another survivor if we would be interested in joining a Walking Group for Cancer Patients to Discuss Goal-Setting. I must say, the other lady was a lot more receptive than I was. Besides the optimism in organizing a walking group for cancer patients in January (in Ottawa), she seemed genuinely to think she had a good … more…
