Our Story captures humanly experiences of living with cancer—the stories that make up our lives and shape who we want to be.

Caroline, on Self-care

A friend of mine said to me recently, 'Have you always been this positive?' Which I thought was a funny reaction to a conversation where I was being what I think of as my pretty cynical self. But I think what he was noting was my level of acceptance … and I just can't use all the emotional energy to be angry or frustrated.

Nita, on Friendships

Well, Christmas time came and I was in the lobby and one of the nurses came out and she said somebody in the back wants to see you, well, I had no idea who it might be. But it was him, he had brought me a Christmas gift and I said why did you do that? And he said, because you’re the only person who‘s ever come in my room and talked to me and I’ve been coming here a long time.
