CancerCon is my home away from home. It is one place that I feel like me and don't have to pretend to be something that I am not or worry about being judged by others. My CancerCon community is my second family. -Jessica
I came by myself and was immediately embraced by this community. It's a safe space that's completely free of judgement, made up of other people who get it. I've felt more myself in the past few days than I have since my diagnosis- I didn't even realize how much I needed it! I'm so lucky that I've found my people. -Christina
I have never felt so safe and so normal! I had so much fun, got to meet so many amazing survivors, learned about so many new resources, and took home a lot of new information. I didn't want to leave! -Champaigne
CancerCon makes such a difference in my life and coping in survivorship. It's so nice to be around people who understand with few words. The friendships I have made will be for life - this is my tribe. -Elissa
As soon as I arrived, I felt at home with no worries or shame. Without this I wouldn’t have been able to find a strong community and build awesome friendships. -Jorge
As a nurse I've seen the diagnosis and the treatments, as a caregiver spouse I experienced the feelings that come with the word cancer, but CancerCon opened me to a community I did not know existed and provided the resources and knowledge that can be life changing for so many. -John
