Finding and using your voice matters.
The difference your voice can make is powerful. You may provide comfort to a fellow patient. You may offer a resource to a survivor to improve their quality of life. You may share an experience that allows someone else to use their own voice to find healing for themselves or others.
We invite anyone who's been touched by cancer to share their story here. We hope the collection of stories you will find below are helpful to you - wherever you are on your journey.
Our hope these stories help empower you. Maybe it means speaking up at your next oncology appointment about a symptom you were embarrassed to discuss. Or perhaps it means pushing back when you feel invalidated or unheard.
While doctors may know about your cancer, you are the expert of your own experience. By sharing your story, you are providing a valuable resource to others in a similar situation.
