[TO THE ONES WHO HELPED US HEAL] To the ones who helped us heal; a parent, best friend, partner, lover, sibling, boyfriend/girlfriend, thank you. Thank you for sticking with us when others left, for making us laugh when nothing about this was funny, and for reminding us that we are more than our diagnosis.

[LIFE ON HOLD] Okay. This is amazing. That 'life interrupted' feeling is all too real for us in the young adult cancer community. But Katie DeMasi decided that she was going to channel the insanity and pissed-off-ness (made that word up but we're going with it) into a blog to share her experiences with her community! Way to #GetBusyLiving, Katie!

[ICYMI: IT'S OKAY TO BE AFRAID] There is a special moment when you're 'cured' and you're meant to just go home and live as if nothing happened because now you're healthy! But it's not that simple, and that's okay. It's okay to still be scared or pissed as hell. It's okay to feel whatever you are feeling.

[THATS NOT THE FULL STORY] "So I understand. I’ve come to realize that me being a cancer survivor is something I’ll never get away from. It’s a part of my story, no doubt." But, like football player James Conner, there is more to the story than cancer. If you could write a letter like this, what would the rest of your story be? #GetBusyLiving

[HOLY SHIT] You know what totally, totally, totally sucks balls? Losing BOTH of yours to two COMPLETELY SEPARATE bouts of testicular cancer before the age of 30, only to then be treated like a geriatric great-grandfather by all of your doctors, adding insult to injury. And all this ON TOP of just having lost your own father to cancer.


But, you know what's jaw-droppingly awesome as...

[DOCTOR GOOGLE] Remember how your oncologist, nurse, family, that other nurse, friends, and all the health care professionals you ever spoke to told you not to turn to Google after your diagnosis? Remember how you didn't listen? Who/where did you turn during your treatment/diagnosis/survivorship for answers or a trusted opinion? [ Link ]

[STUPID INFERTILITY] The one-two punch of being diagnosed with cancer when all your parts work. Good news: You will live. Bad news: These treatments may cause infertility. Good news: You can preserve your fertility. Bad news: Costs for fertility preservation can run as high as $24,000 or more. You have a right to decide whether or not you will be a parent.

[THE CANCER LABEL] "I was thrown into the spotlight of 'cancer girl,' and I wasn't quite ready for that. I didn't really want that." A 5-time All-American swimmer and NCAA champion and the label that stuck for Alex Marshall was 'cancer patient'. Who else has difficulty dealing with this particular label? When to wear it and when you just wish you could take it off?

"Now throw in some cancer, chemo, radiation, missing boobs, nuts, ovaries, vital organs, those sweet hospital gowns, and hospital wards filled with people at least 45 years older than you and you have a recipe for something really special," said LITERALLY no one ever. And that is why these...
