Patient Stories

Patient Stories

This section is dedicated to honoring the journey of patients with cancer, their friends and family members.

We recognize that each person’s journey is unique and is their own. We also know that it can be helpful to both express the experience and share it with others. Through art, pictures and words the pain and growth that comes from this journey is expressed. We hope that you will find opportunities to both express your journey through one of our groups or here on our web site in the “six word story”. We hope that reviewing other’s work will also be helpful to you while traveling your own path.
