If you'd told me a few years ago that I'd be eager to write a blog and build a community, my first response would have been, "What on earth could I write about that anyone else would care about?" and the second would have been, "Community?? I'm not a group person!"
Well, like it or not, I am a member of a very special group. According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 11,958,000 people in the United States are living with cancer as of 2008 (the most recent year for which good estimates are available.)
During my initial diagnosis and treatment phase, I heard numerous times that everyone's experience with cancer is different. Although that's certainly true, there is one very important way in which we are all the same - all 11,958,000 of us are still here. And let's not forget for a second about all the additional millions of our family, friends and supporters who travel on this journey with us. So, when you read about my personal experience with cancer at About Debbie, keep in mind that WWGN is not about my breast cancer. It is about each of us experiencing life after cancer as individuals and as a community - all 11,958,000 of us and our supporters strong.
