Once you have found your voice and identified what you need, you must verbalize those needs to start to use it.

What that means is different for each person. Maybe, for you, it means speaking up at your next oncology appointment about a symptom you were embarrassed to discuss. Maybe 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. We accept written and video submissions for our blog and Tell Your Story Program.

Your experience during and after treatment is also extremely valuable in the formation of new treatments. Consider lending your voice to patient experience research like The GRYT Project. Not only will you have the opportunity to be heard, but you will be helping to improve quality of life and health outcomes for others.

Discover resources here to navigate what it means to use your voice and how by doing so, you can make a difference for yourself and others.

Survivorship In charge of your health

Some of us rush to get back to normal after treatment; others of us are so impacted by the trauma that it impedes on our daily life. Survivorship looks different for everyone, based on your cancer, treatment, ongoing therapies, chronic conditions, and personal circumstances like work, home and financial situations...

Cancer Is The Best Thing That Has Ever Happened To Me

So I decided to find that lesson, learn through it, and apply it to my life.
