We have started a new feature on our web site called #YourFight. It provides a chance to let readers share their battle with cancer in their own words. We will be featuring these stories on a regular basis. If you would like to share yours, follow the link here to find out how. The stories and treatments you will read about are specific for each individual and may be different than your own. These posts are designed to tell the stories of the reality of cancer and it’s impact on our lives, not as medical advice. If you or anyone you know is going through similar battles, we encourage you to be an informed health consumer and seek professional medical advice.
Today’s story comes from Megan Silianoff, a writer/blogger living in Houston, Texas who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer at 28. Since then she’s had one relapse but now is 30 and describes life as being “good”.
Here is Megan’s story…….in her own words.
I’ve actually written a memoir about my story called Cancer with Charisma – Cancer Sucks, Vicoden Doesn’t
and am in the works of getting it published. I also occasionally discuss my cancer drama on my humorous lifestyle blog, Greetings from Texas
. Like here
I faced my cancer drama with a huge sense of humor. Having a sense of humor is something I’ll maintain should cancer, or any hardship for that matter, return my way.
Who YOU give a SHOUT OUT to through all your experiences? – My husband. Being a cancer patient is easy. You figure it out. You have too. Being the spouse to a cancer patient is much harder.
What’s next for you?
– Getting my book published. I will also continue to be a vocal survivor through my blog,Greetings from Texas.
