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.

imageSterling - My wish for you  I'm not Irish.  There was no real Irish community in our neighborhood growing up.  So I was not familiar with the "Irish Blessing" (Sorry Marcia). Today thanks to an Irish pastor, I learned that the Irish Blessing is a real thing... and there's even a hymn.

So today here's my wish for each and every one of you May the road rise to meet you, May the … more…

imageAmy - Treatment Plan and Chemotherapy Mountains   Yesterday was March 12th, a year ago I was admitted to the ICU for an emergency brain surgery and subsequently diagnosed with brain cancer. It’s crazy how one day can change your life forever. If someone were to tell me on March 11th what I’d have to go through over the next year I’d be terrified, but strength is something you find day by day, moment by moment. I do not always feel strong but I trust myself to find … more…
