This week in our blog round up we feature breast and colon cancer bloggers, and two Navigating Cancer community members who have shared their cancer stories.
As the year winds down, we’re thankful for all the stories and experiences that we’ve been fortunate to come across from the cancer community. Each post is a snapshot into the lives and thoughts of someone dealing with cancer, and can be helpful to someone else who may be experiencing something similar.
In an effort to encourage more shared experiences, we are asking the Navigating Cancer community to post their cancer stories to our site so that others may benefit from their knowledge. For each shared experience from now until the end of the year, we will enter your name into a drawing for a chance to win a Kindle from Amazon!* Currently we have over 20 shared experiences, so your odds are pretty good, start sharing today!
Cancer blog round up: December 17
- As any mother with young children, Judy ponders how her breast cancer is effecting her child’s world in her post “A Week Off of Treatment”
- The poignant title “Understanding” describes Stephanie’s wise view of the ability to help others during difficult times in life, including a battle with breast cancer.
- For those who have gone through a port placement, Lan’s post “Port is Implanted” may resonate with your own experience.
In her post “-C- is for Curve”, Maureen teaches us that ‘C’ stands for a lot more than cancer.
Carol completes “My Cancer Story” with advise to get through one day at a time, knowing that each day builds into a week, and weeks into months.
