This summer, I am reflecting and writing about what I wish that I had known earlier about getting good care following active cancer treatment, based on my experience with five different cancer diagnoses and what I have learned from others.

If you have been diagnosed and treated for cancer, I invite you to join me. Interested in writing a blog for this series? Get in touch. Have a response to mine or others’ insights? Please comment.

Let’s share with others hard-won lessons learned over the years about what it takes to find the right health care and make the most of it as part of our effort to live as well and as long as we can.

PS-Take a look at the Prepared Patient blog. I just released: “I Wish I Had Known Earlier…For Many of Us, Symptoms, and Late Effects Accumulate Rather Than Fade Over Time.”
