Survivor stories

Cancercare has many survivor stories to share. The stories on this page come from patients who are all alive with a history of cancer. Here they share with you their stories of hope, how they had to make huge sacrifices, how their families got involved, and most of all, how they managed to win the fight.

Share your survivor story with us

Do you have a story to share with us? Once a month, Cancercare will publish the best survivor’s story per month on their website and the writer of that story will receive a special Cancercare Survivor’s pendant [male and female versions available] to wear in remembrance of a journey of hope. We will post all the stories on our website, Twitter and Facebook for you to share.
