If you have cancer.

If you had cancer.

If you know someone with cancer.

If you want to talk about cancer.

We won't pray.  We won't blame gods.  We won't give credit to gods.  

We face the diagnosis and know, it is what it is.  

To the extent that we can, we will define our own course.

Cancer changes lives.

We have to deal with medical profession.

We have to deal with medications.

We have to deal with new discomfort and pain.

We have to create dignity, where there is indignity.

We have to deal with family members, friends, coworkers, and strangers, in a changed way.

We resolve to go forward with strength, resilience, purpose, pride, and integrity.

We define ourselves. Cancer does not define us.

Hi Trixie,

This group was created for people like you and me and the others here.

You are right, cancer hits hard and fast.  Lots of time getting poked and prodded and scanned and injected and other stuff.

There is some experience here.  We want to help.

Welcome Trixie!

Lots of great people on this site as well as this group.

*Nothing fails like prayer* ......Not to mention a huge waste of one's precious time!

We have our own stories & how we coped with this crappy disease, so join in & ask away.......

Hey everyone,

I'm new here.  And, new to cancer.   It hit hard and fast.  I feel like I live at the hospital these days,  I've been looking for a support group to help me through this, but everything local seems to be just prayer groups.  Glad I found you!
