Hello, Welcome to ACancerSuvivor.com. I’m Ryan, the survivor behind the website. I am an adult survivor of a childhood brain tumor. I’ve found that part of my healing process has been sharing my experience through writing and speaking on the topic of survivorship and raising awareness for cancer research and funding.
Here, I share stories from my diagnosis, treatment and recovery but also what it’s like to be a long term survivor. Occasionally, I’ll also share other things I find interesting in the world of cancer research and survivorship and will bring in guests to share their story.
A few words to:
Newly Diagnosed Cancer Patients
Hang in there. Be strong and muscle through each day. What helped me get through my battle was a constant reminder from my mom to just take it one step at a time. Cancer can feel like a beast, a monster, a whale to take on. In that case, I remind you of Shel Silverstein’s advice on whale eating.
Fellow Cancer Survivors
We are among a growing number thanks to the advances in medical research. I love hearing from other survivors so if you want to contact ACancerSurvivor.com, I’d love to hear your store. Also, connect with our social networks.
Caregivers, Friends and Family
The unsung heroes of the battle. Your support during and after a battle with cancer is everything. Your stories are also inspirations. You’re the ones who organize communities and causes and prayer chains and benefits.
