Meet Elissa. She was only 23 when she was first treated for breast cancer. After going two more rounds with the disease, she understood the journey and wanted to guide others who were travelling the same path. Now, she works with other breast cancer survivors, helping them to navigate the rough spots. Click below to hear her story.

I’m an oncologist. Every day, I meet patients like Elissa who fight their disease in remarkable ways. This site is about them, their journeys, their stories. It’s a place for all of us – patients, families, friends, doctors, nurses – to share the unique and meaningful ways that people who are living with cancer add life to their days.

“The goal is to live a full, productive life even with all that ambiguity. No matter what happens… the important thing is that the days that you have had you will have lived.”
