Review for Cansurvive Gyn Cancer Support Group, Birmingham, AL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Hi, my name is Sonya Wells. I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in July 2008. For the next few months I would learn new words, oncology, chemotherapy, and the scariest thing to me would be ports and infusion therapy. When all was finished, I felt sure I would run from the building and never say CANCER again. I begin to receive e-mails form a group called CANSURVIVE. I went to a meeting, and there were people giving of their time and support in more ways than I could ever imagine. I felt as though I left with hope, courage, a since of humor and realized I was able to say I had cancer, and I was now called a SURVIVOR.
CANSURVIVE group is a great and wonderful way to stay aware of the new drugs, help others who have just been diagnosed. Also ask questions get answers, and I feel I have a new extended family who understands me and there is no judgment to the Chemo Brain we all share.
Cancer will always be a part of my life but I am no longer afraid to say cancer, and when you put a group of women together one thing is for sure you will find power beyond measure.
