Such a delight to spend time with Lisa and Nancy, the mother and daughter publishers of the digital Big Blend Radio & TV Magazine and Parks & Travel Magazine, to hear about their travels and talk about a common household word these days, cancer. More than 40% of individuals today will experience a cancer diagnosis in their lifetime, which is one in two individuals who identify as men and one in three individuals who identify as women. Hearing of a cancer diagnosis personally, or of a loved one or friend, evokes such fear that it is hard to know what to do or say. I wrote All Of Us Warriors: Cancer Stories of Survival and Loss as a communication tool to help in this fear-filled situation. Each story follows the path of a cancer diagnosis, including discovering the cancer, treatment, and ends with advice. My goal in writing is to touch a million lives in a positive way with this advice, in hopes of demystifying cancer.
