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.

imageLarissa - The Stones along the Way...journal April 22 2019  The stones along the way...journal April 22 2019 Recently I was invited to celebrate with a friend that conquered the nasty creature we refer to as cancer, personally I would like to use less tasteful words but I will refrain.  As I sat at the table looking at the small group of friends she chose to hold close that day I was reminded of the portion of my path that mirrored hers. I adore paths, I am drawn to paths in photos, … more…

The first one is light, and after the next few, the tone gets light again and perhaps you will be moved to laugh at one or two. As time progresses, and my grief changes colors, my writing has broadened. If a couple of these I have posted before, please forgive the repetition. Although, I have edited them and they are a little different than before.   Flutterbye (she's a butterfly) Dazzling colors flitter as … more…

He ordered a mammogram. I had not had one in FIVE … more…

imageKaren - Two Years After My Dad's Death    It's been almost two years since my Dad died from pancreatic cancer May 1, 2017.  I felt the need to post because in a way, it helps heal me (and because I am so damn emotional around this time.) I guess it comes with the territory of having been there when your loved one passes away, feeling their body and head still warm but knowing that they are somehow gone from this world. I thought maybe I would reflect on what … more…
