Advice for My Teenage Self

by Julia Hernandez

You never expect to be told that you have cancer, but on February 14, 2010, Valentine’s Day, it hap­pened to me. In a matter of days, I went from being a typical 16-year-old girl, worried about my upcoming driver’s license test, to a cancer survivor living in a hospital.

A Husband’s Journey Through a
Double Mastectomy

by Chris Spires

Breast Cancer. Like so many, I’ve seen the pink ribbons, watched women in pink t-shirts hit the streets for fundraising 5Ks, and cheered on pink-clad football players during the NFL’s Breast Cancer Awareness drives every October.

After Cancer,
Discovering the Life I Was Meant to Live

by Amelia Frahm

“You’ll get over it, and one day you’ll wake up in the morning, and cancer won’t be the first thing you think about,” said the woman on the phone.
