As Maya Angelou said, “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”
The healing power of sharing my cancer story compelled me to found WhereWeGoNow. It also motivated me to become a speaker, a support volunteer with the Cancer Hope Network, a member of the Carol G. Simon Cancer Center Oncology Community Advisory Board, and a patient educator with Pathways Women’s Cancer Teaching Project. I write about cancer survivorship here at WhereWeGoNow and at CURE, Positively Positive, and the Huffington Post. You can find my two books on the subject here: How To Build an Amazing Life After Treatment and You Can Thrive After Treatment.
I’m also a wife and mother, and a former very stressed out lawyer.
Right now, though, I’m just really glad that you’re here!
If you’re like me, you remember the moment you went from blissful ignorance, to concentrating your entire being on beating cancer. You faced the diagnostic process, involving scary, painful testing. You pushed through to treatment, terrified to submit to surgery, chemotherapy and/or radiation, but courageously faced what needed to be done.
Now, after that crazy time of tests, doctors, treatments, hospitalizations, chemo sessions, etc., we stand on the other side and ask ourselves – Where do we go now?
Welcome to that place. At WhereWeGoNow you’re never alone as you work through difficult emotions (survivor’s guilt, anger, grief, loneliness, stress, etc., etc.) and explore your new life beyond cancer.
Together we encourage, motivate and celebrate each other as we create inspired healing, wellness and live out loud joy!
