I was diagnosed with Invasive Ductal Carcinoma (IDC) at the age of 32. I decided to blog now because at times, I find survivorship to be more challenging than the actual cancer treatments. This blog is my outlet, and hopefully, I will hear some of your perspectives too.
I am not following any chronology.
Why “the small c?”
To keep it simple: I hate the phrase “the big c.” I don’t want to glorify it as something that has power over me.
I’m not saying cancer isn’t a serious challenge. It is – all stages of cancer. I am not disregarding the efforts and sacrifices of those who have physically and mentally dealt with this disease by calling my blog “the small c.” I just choose to define this situation the way I want to for me.
There is a lot I dislike about the culture in cancerland and I write about those topics too.
