My Blue Dots Stories

Cancer Warrior Stories

Cancer can be a devastating experience. Eventually, we survive the treatments of radiation and chemotherapy. The experience causes us to stop and re-evaluate and to view life in a new and different way.

My Blue Dots salutes all those that have gone through this difficult journey. Be inspired and find hope when you read the following Cancer Warrior stories. If you are a fellow Cancer Warrior or Caregiver, Email us your story and any photos you have to . We would love to feature you so you can inspire and give hope to those who are now going through treatment.
