Cancer Journals

The Cancer Journals
I was recently diagnosed with cancer and I am posting a series of blogs which I am calling "Cancer Journals", named after Audre Lorde's classic The Cancer Journals.  I'm doing this in order to process my experiences and my emotions, and I trust that it will be beneficial for you to read about my journey.
