Share your story about living with cancer
By Sheryl M. Ness, R.N.
As I reflect on the past three years of the Living with Cancer blog, I realize that many of you have enjoyed sharing your personal story and hearing from others. It's powerful to hear from other cancer survivors in their own words.
At Mayo Clinic we strive to provide the best care to every patient every day — in person as well as through online forums such as this blog. One of our goals is to support your patient experience by sharing with each other.
We'd love to hear from you whether you've been a patient at Mayo Clinic or not. Your story can provide a sense of hope and reassurance to others who may be experiencing a similar situation. Having cancer changes you and it can also inspire you to make a difference for another person experiencing cancer.
I encourage you to write and share your individual stories with each other by adding a comment to the blog — as well as on our Patient Stories page.
Go to MayoClinic.org/patientstories/ and look for the Cancer Treatment at Mayo Clinic section. I encourage you to read the current stories and contribute your own if you would like.blog index Next page
