A community to share deeply human stories and advice for facing serious illness.

"Cancer is a scary diagnosis but when we know what we are going to experience beforehand, it makes it almost bearable."

"And whatever you do, and whatever your situation, try and remember one important thing:
You are not your cancer."

 "I realized I had to find someplace to just tell the whole story of what happened. So I did."

"You don’t choose to become a caregiver, it just happens. The hardest thing is to find the balance in between the good times and the bad. "

"My other big takeaway is simple. The palliative discussion should not be left for when active care is over."
