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.

Guess I need to go Buy a wig. But I’m just having a hard time … more…

imageLarissa - Life is bigger than a moment in time....5/15/19  We all have them, a moment in time, a snapshot or memory that was so quick yet so huge it altered our life forever.  Changed who we are, reshaped our thinking and catapulted us to a realm of life unimaginable just seconds before.   These moments can be crushingly sad or filled with a joy we never thought possible.  A baby is born, a loved one passes away, an accident occurs, a doctor utters a less than happy diagnosis or the heart … more…

MY TUMOR IS GONE!  She said that the area is still really raw from the radiation and gave me some Botox injections to hopefully help with the spams and pain.  The good news … more…

imageWendy - Swollen Ankles  I just talked with Carole, one of the gals on this site, and she suggested I write about a different incident I had last week 5/3/19 with swollen ankles.  I usually have very prominent ankle bones, but all of a sudden I couldn't see them at all and I had Cancles! My first thought was that it probably had something to do with the radiation as I've never had this problem before. I called my radiation oncologist office explained that my ankles & … more…
