When cancer strikes, life changes. You have to learn to live with a “new normal”… cancer’s new normal.

People ask me all the time, "Do you ever feel like all of this is just not fair?". Mostly... no. I feel "changed", but not for the worse. I now appreciate every little thing once overlooked in my busy day to day life. More importantly, I feel that I've been dealt an opportunity to make a difference in people’s lives. I hope to give them hope. I hope to help inspire them to fight, to teach them how important science and research are, and let them know that good things can come from the bad. When you face a cancer diagnosis, it's important to laugh and look for the positive. You will hear, read, and see plenty of negatives. But, if you learn to change your outlook... see things through "cancer's new normal"... you just might find, that you've got a lot of great little moments to enjoy.
