    My grampa died of cancer a few years ago

    and I hate how my family had to see him waste away. He died from pancreatic cancer, which is one of the more difficult cancers to detect. I love him so much and miss him everyday. It makes me sad to know that he'll won't get to see my children (should I have any). I hate how...

    I just recently found out I have cancer.

    The tumour is on my arm. At first I thought it was just some dirt as it was only small, I tried to wipe it off but it wouldn't come off. After a few days it turned a light purple, so I thought it might be a bruise that will go away. Then it started to go dark brown and raised...

    Words cannot describe the shock you feel when first receiving your diagnosis. For me, it was mind-numbing. I literally could not think. For the first few days I went through a series of emotions, ranging from shock to fear, to pure red hot rage. I would wake up at night with this...
