So, here are some favorites of mine!
First, StupidCancer has a great blog where young patients and survivors share thoughts and experiences. A recent posts is one of my favorites of all time since it conveys positivity and acceptance in a genuine, hopeful, and all-around wonderful way. "Celebrating the Cancer Way" is the name of the post and in it cancer patient Ali Powers writes about how cancer kept her and her friends from celebrating New Year's Eve in the city like any young adult should be able to do - yet Ali writes about this setback in a way that makes it sound like it was blessing and something that enriched her New Year's Eve rather than something that ruined it. This perspective is so important and I highly recommend reading her post!
Second, Cancer Knowledge Network also has a fantastic blog where young patients and survivors can share words of wisdom. While the types of posts are diverse, as on the StupidCancer blog, there was one recent post that stood out to me because of the positivity it fostered. The post is called "Top 5 Lessons Learned in 5 Years of Cancer Survivorship" and in it cancer survivor Steve Pake shares his lessons learned in an amazingly positive way. I definitely encourage you to check out Cancer Knowledge Network and Steve's post!
Finally, I recently found a really cool blog by a young cancer survivor named Alexandra Spain. I read through a few of her posts and I love the positivity and forward-thinking attitude she conveys through them all! The blog is called Battling Roses and Thorns and it's definitely a site I recommend looking at for some great examples of turning the adversity of cancer into opportunities to better yourself and your life!
