Finding your voice - or becoming an advocate for yourself - is an important step in cancer recovery for your mind, body and soul.

But, don’t be too hard on yourself if you are not there yet, or you are not sure where to start. You can’t expect to be an expert in something you’ve never experienced. 

Everyone experiences cancer in a different way. Having resources available to you for support, education – and eventually, empowerment – are so important. In this section, we’ve put together a collection of articles to help you along your journey.

I’m having fun exploring my humanity. Sometimes it’s pretty. Sometimes it’s pure chaos. But the further we are from the “norm” in some aspect of who we are, the more important it is to be true to it. Have fun exploring your humanity. I’ll be there cheering and supporting you on in whatever form or in any expression that is… because that is the real you.

Cancer Isn't Just Cancer
