Finding My Strength

by Richard S. Hillman

When I heard the doctor say prostate cancer, it felt as if I was struck by a bolt of light­ning. My wife, Audrey, and I had moved to Florida to enjoy an active retirement. A few sets of tennis and a swim were on our daily agendas. Not this. It seemed our world would crumble.

by Morgan Thompson

Scared. Confused. Hurt. Ashamed. When I was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma at just 26 years old, I was overwhelmed with so many different emotions, but the feel­ing of shame kept washing over me.

Take a Hike

by Patti McCarthy

In September 2012, I was on top of life. My husband and I cel­ebrated 25 years of marriage. Our three kids were in college, all doing well. I was awarded a top honor at my job. I couldn’t have been happier, more successful, or healthier. Then on October 4, I got the call: “Patti, you have invasive breast cancer.”
