I am a young breast cancer survivor. On September 25, 2009, I became part of the group no one ever wants to belong. Eight years ago, over the phone, I heard the dreaded words, “You have cancer.”
Shortly after being diagnosed, I decided I would do something good with what I was given. After that, it became my duty to share my story and help others facing cancer. As I came to learn, cancer is so much more than just the diagnosis and treatment. It’s a lifelong journey that changes the way you live life.
At the time, there were not many easily accessible tools to help those affected by cancer. I really had to search for relevant online groups and navigate the many articles and books out there.
