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.

Share Your Story

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.

David Reed's Story

I am thankful for every day and I enjoy my life to the full. I no longer look to a job or my physical strength to define who I am or to give me confidence. I’m still here for my family, in a different way. In a better way.

Cancer Will Not Take Over Me

I choose life. I’m going to fight to the very end to make sure I’m there for my son’s first birthday, his first steps, my wedding anniversary, my sister’s college graduation. Everything that I was planning before, is still going to be my reality later. I’m choosing to smile through my treatments in hopes to show others that if I can do it, so can you.
