“Our nation’s massive support of 'the cure' has greatly increased cancer survivability.
Now more than ever those of us who are continuing to live through it need to express ourselves so that others can more readily interact, engage and include us.
There is life with and after cancer.”
Tracy E. Thomas, Project Of Love
