Stronger Than Cancer was created in the fall of 2010, as a place online where cancer survivors could find the information they needed to empower their own journey to cancer survival.
This felt important to me, after my diagnosis in the early 2000s left me wanting more and more information. I read about studies, and devoured articles about how simple things like the vitamins in fruit could fight cancer - but your doctor never mentions these things, so real information was something you needed to dig for. Stronger Than Cancer was created as a starting point, to help anyone who wants to learn about what they can do to improve their chance of survival.
If you've recently been diagnosed with cancer, or wondering what you can do to prevent it, Stronger Than Cancer has a lot of information that will help you make the choices that work for you.
