Questions on Your Cancer Diagnosis?

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 - Poem Collection February 2019  An eclectic selection from my heart to yours. Sorry about any format glitch, this program is a B.....   MY HEART HAS GROWN Her soul forever with me, I feel her in my heart Physically no longer present, love and spirit never apart She sees and hears and knows, what I think and what I feel, Sometimes I recognize the signs, sometimes not sure they’re real Her soul now lives as part of mine, her voice a harmony tight and neat, Our resonance thus combined, makes my melody … more…

imageCarly - One year  Hey everyone!  It’s been a while since I posted, but I do update my personal blog linked in my bio. I’ve just reached my one year cancer free anniversary which is also my 1 year of ostomy life.

I haven't had any luck trying to get to see an oncologist that specializes in AML/stem cell transplants to continue my follow-ups, … more…

imageAvyka - Has anyone tried cold capping?  I rented the Warrior Caps cold capping system. I know there are several options on the market but I found them to be the most affordable, personable and accesssble. I wanted to try and prevent as much hair loss as possible. You only have to wear them on infusion days. Day one was challenging for me because they are extremely cold. But honestly I think it helped because I have only had minor shedding so far. Day 29 for me … more…
