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.

imageNeal - Some Recent Poems, Some for December  December has a lot. The holidays, and what would have been my eighteenth anniversary Dec. 22, and Emilee died Jan. 31, which will be two years. So there is emotion galore. Hopefully there is something here that engages you, touches you, moves you in a good way.    I realize I want to create another post with humorous poems. I don't think these are the kind that make you laugh, but hopefully they make you feel something. The Em in December your hair is … 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…

imageCarly - Start the car!  Have you seen the IKEA commercial when the lady runs out yelling “start the car”? It’s a catchy advert that I’ve jokingly used many times. Lately I literally want to start my car and drive with no particular destination in mind, but instead to just get far far away. However we all know you can’t run away from your problems, they always run with you if not faster. Battling and beating cancer once before in 2014/15, I felt I’d do … more…

imageAlicia - Invention  With our current technology, couldn't someone please invent a way to enter your medical history etc into a standardized form on the internet so that you could send it to your doctors and not be forced to write a novel for EVERY doctor you have to see?  I don't even remember the answers to most of the questions they ask.  For my appointment today I must arrive 1 hour prior to my appointment....  crazy... thanks for letting me vent! … more…

imageJeanie - Good news  I am 2-1/2 months post treatment.  I went back to MD Anderson for CT scan, blood work, and proctosigmoidoscope as well as followup with all the doctors.  My tumor is completely gone!  A lesion on my kidney that was seen on my first CT scan has grown in the last 4 months months to 1.7 cm.  I was sent to a genitourinary specialist who told me I could have the lesion removed by ablation because the size is still so small.  It … more…

imageAlicia - Newly Diagnosed  I was just diagnosed with anal canal cancer.  This is all going so quickly, and I don't think it has really set in yet...   I am inspired by the stories I have read of fighters and thrivers and plan to embrace the strength and positive attitudes.  Thank you to each of you for taking the time to share your stories, because there is so little information online about this diagnosis and the unknown is so very scarey. I have not read much about … more…

imageCarly - Choo choo    Meant to post this the other day... A locomotive goes 🎶choo choo🎶 and I’ve often thought of myself like a train. My way of choo-choo’ing is by remaining positive and by taking the wins when they come. However there are many railway tracks to travel and sometimes a derailment happens. I feel derailed right now. I’m so darn angry and with that comes sadness.  If I’m being completely honest with myself and with you I’m an emotional wreck. I feel like I’ve … more…

imageRichard - BEING THANKFUL  its always being on pins and needles after i add a post thinking if i will get responses and ALWAYS HAPPY TO SEE THE REPLYS...... but sometimes i fail to grasp the magnitude of love and caring and compassion and just plain good old niceness of my fellow cancer fighters who though busy with their own battles fought or currently being fought always find the time to send a hug or a message just to let me know that there are … more…
