Part 2 of Rebecca's story is out! In this installment, Rebecca is faced with grasping the seriousness of her diagnosis, the uncertainly of her situation, and the extensive and painful treatment ahead. "I felt I couldn’t do it. I couldn’t fight. I hated pain. I hated drugs. I hated hospitals. It was Christmas soon. It would be my last Christmas. My last Christmas with my family." Read her second chapter in the link below.

Six years ago, Rebecca thought she had a bladder infection. As one doctor visit led to another, weeks dragged on. She knew something wasn't right, but nobody could tell her what was wrong.

Below, we published the first chapter of her story. Thank you so much for sharing, Rebecca!

Running a quick internet search about what families and friends should and shouldn’t say to cancer patients yields literally thousands of results. As our staff sifted through some of them, we realized that most of the advice seemed very generic despite this topic being obviously very sought out. So we set out on a mission: instead of guessing what works and what doesn’t for our patients, we decided to ask them directly.
