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.

imageShannon - Suppositories   Have any of you used special suppositories just for the conditioning/moisturizing/healing benefit? It just makes sense to me. They have us use Aquaphor and other creams on the external skin that has been damaged from the radiation. Why wouldn't we use some thing internal to help that skin. Like coconut oil or natural Shea butter.  … more…

imageJeanie - Tied to a bathroom  I am a year and 8 months out from treatment.  I am pretty much tied to being near - quite near - a bathroom.  Control is limited.  Has this been the experience of most of you?  I would like to be able to plan a trip but am concerned that I will be in trouble if I try.  Any advise? … more…

imageShannon - B 12 Update  Results came back that the B 12 was low and my Vit D was borderline line.  It surprised me on the Vit D being low I have been taking 1000 units twice a day.  But I had not been taking calcium consistantly.  They started me on the B12 shots and I am making sure I take the calcium along w/ the Vit D.  Also making sure to take with meals for better absorption.  I hadnt done yoga in a while.  … more…

imageShannon - Yes I did  So today I sent a nice message on messenger to the physician who told me it was hemorrhoids. I told him I was not angry. But I hoped this would help someone in the future. This dr was in a military family medical clinic. He even did a rectal exam on me. He has since went to a new duty station. I explained to him how my symptoms continued and how I went to a new primary care physician and insisted on a … more…

imageSUSAN - 12 week check up post treatment  Well, I'm glad this milestone is behind me! CT clear, anoscope today revealed the cancer is gone! Blood work results to come on Friday.  Relieved .. however, this is just one more step on this horrific journey down Anal Cancer Lane. I realized laying on the CT table that this is my new normal. It brought tears to my eyes. Other than that pesky "mass in my a**" I was a healthy person. No prescription meds, only natural supplements, ate healthy, exercised daily, … more…

If you are interested, check it out: https://www.pbs.org/kenburns/the-gene/ The second part seemed a bit more interesting.  I've always been fascinated by DNA technology. … more…
