A Place for You

Cancer is a scary word, but as anyone who has experienced the disease knows, it’s also somewhat generic. Ovarian cancer is not the same as cervical. Lung cancer is different from melanoma. Treatments and prognosis and trials and side effects are all dependent on the type of malignancy each patient has.

From our first conversations about how to make Beauty Pearls for Chemo Girls a comprehensive guide for women facing cancer, Debbie and I were united in our commitment that this website provide a place where women could connect, not only in the broad sense of diagnosis, but in the particular details of each separate affliction.

While my personal story focused on the cancer in my breasts, I know very well that throat or stomach cancer patients will have a narrative very different from my own. Our goal has always been to ensure that the vast community of chemo girls, all doing their best to make it through each day, has a platform to connect with those whose story is most relevant to their own.

Our Forum pages are now up and running. We invite each and every visitor to go to locate their cancer and then post questions, share stories, relate anecdotes and contribute their own chemo survival tips. While our book features world renowned expert advice, we are certain that the ladies on the front lines of illness will also have a trick or two about coping and it’s these insights we hope you’ll share.

The chemo community is a fluid place. Women come in at the beginning of treatment, and leave – hopefully forever – once their last infusion is received. While we hope and pray that your time in this space is short, we encourage each of you to reach out to women who may not yet have any idea cancer is about to strike, and leave your own pearls of wisdom on these boards for her to utilize.

Empowerment, encouragement and enlightenment are the gifts we can use to uplift anyone whose life journey includes chemotherapy. By being generous with your knowledge and open with your spirit, you’ll do something beautiful for women you may never know, but who will always appreciate the generosity and support they find here, in the community we can call our own.
