This is a website developed and maintained by cancer patients, survivors, and their loved ones to help people with a cancer diagnosis understand the need to educate and advocate for themselves as well as providing the tools to do so. This is not a site that will tell you what to do – or advise you to follow a particular service / product — we strongly encourage everyone to find their own path and we want to support you with that goal.
This is not a website for revenge or intolerance. We are not here to bash people or to “name names.” We will not ridicule other people’s beliefs, choices of treatment, or philosophy. Any and all information is welcome here. If we view a post as derisive of someone else or their choices, it will be removed.
As people who have gone through a cancer diagnosis, we know how much information, some accurate and some not-so-much, is out there. We understand “not being able to see the forest through the trees,” because we have been inundated with books, articles, links, dietary plans, and contact information of people or programs guaranteed to “save us.” On the other hand, we also know that some beneficial information may not be readily accessible, especially if you don’t know what or who to ask. There are valuable resources available if you know how to find them. We started this site to let people know it is okay to question, to demand, to select a different path, and to say no. This is a time when it has to be about the patient and we are here to support them. Hopefully, our stories, information, and educational tools will help patients and survivors in their journeys.
