September is Gynecologic Cancer Awareness Month. It’s important.

Women of every age need to learn, understand, and be aware of their bodies. This is where my own education began: The Foundation for Women’s Cancer.
I’m here, five years after beginning my journey, and still learning. If you know my blog, you know I’ve tried to write about my experiences, and to share them with the hope that they’ll help someone else. I’m not a cancer warrior. I’m a traveler. The category archives are here: Cancer; and here: Road to Wellville.
