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.

imageDale - 10 Years Ago Today  It was 10 years ago on this exact day that I was introduced to the most wretched, horrid thing on this planet, Cancer. It started as a small dull ache in my gut. Unfortunately for me, it happened just after the Canadian Thanksgiving. I went to see the doctor, and statistically, it made sense that it should have been from all the excessive eating and drinking from the weekend (bacteria or what-not from the turkey). I gave it a couple … more…

imageMary - Five year anniversary - tick  Hi all,  I'm pleased to be able to share with you that I have now been signed off. I am no longer being followed up by my Oncologist as I have been monitored and assessed over 60 months post-treatment and my (stage 1) cancer has gone.  I hope this will give others hope and help you to get through treatment. The five and a half weeks of chemo-radiation treatment is similar, I believe, whether the cancer is advanced or mercifully not advanced.  … more…

imageLarissa - The choices we do not choose....journal 9/19/2020  In life we are often faced with choices we do not choose.   I realize this sounds odd but for example, you may be given choices like mine,  to treat your illnesses with medical science , natural therapies or just let nature take course.  These are not choices we wish to choose, We CHOOSE  to have healthy bodies!   The other day I was watching our three grandkids playing when the one year old discovered my hand weights and was determined to get … more…
