Everyone who suffers from cancer endures a unique journey. Cancer patients rarely have the same experience, but coming together with others who are dealing with an uncertain and ongoing illness can be a source of strength and support. One of the ways to deal with a diagnosis or a treatment is by reading personal cancer blogs.

By subscribing to a blog, you can read stories from others who are dealing with their disease. The blogs can form a sense of community for people who are dealing with their own health issues and feeling uncertain or frightened about the future.

If you’re not finding a blog that serves your needs as a patient or a survivor, consider writing your own. You’ll likely reach a lot of people who find comfort in your words. Sharing your own story can also help you deal with the emotions and thoughts that surround your own cancer journey.
