“For those dealing with a health crisis, hearing patient stories effectively communicates information about treatment approaches, medical advances, coping strategies, and other tips for navigation.

Human-interest stories create a connection between the subject and the reader, as well as leave a lasting impression.

It is about the human spirit...”

Quote from Jeannine Walston, cancer survivor and major content writer for this website.


We hope/believe that the emotional burden of cancer can be lightened by connecting to other people with the disease. This section of the website is our gift to you.
