While writing about my journey as a cancer-spouse has been very cathartic for many reasons, my ultimate goal for committing these stories to text can be summed up in one word: AWARENESS.

Whether you’re checking out my blog because you can relate to my experiences personally, or you’re just interested (or bored) enough to read my “story,” I hope it provides you with information about a disease that significantly impacts the lives of individuals and families across the globe.
