A Cancer Story in 22 Pictures

The words "You have cancer" are arguably some of the most devastating you can hear. I have found new cancer patients (and those supporting them) love hearing stories (and seeing pictures!) of how survivors faced cancer. This inspires the newly diagnosed to face it differently than they may have had they not heard these stories.

Being inspired by "A Love Story in 22 Pictures," which went viral, I decided to present to you "A Cancer Story in 22 Pictures." Please share, for you know people fighting cancer, and the people you know know others fighting cancer who you don't know. It's my hope we can get as many as possible fighting cancer right now, around the world, seeing this and making a different choice to fight "cancer with Joy." After all, if you've gotta face cancer, would you rather face it with joy or withOUT joy? This is a time you can use some humor and happiness!
