Growing Bolder


Sunday, June 3 marks the annual National Cancer Survivors Day. It's a day to celebrate life and to raise awareness about the many challenges faced by cancer survivors. At Growing Bolder, we've had the great privilege to share many of these incredible survivors' stories of Surviving & Thriving. No two cancer experiences are the same, and we can all learn valuable lessons from each person, whether we ever face cancer or not.

We never fail to be inspired by these incredible men, women and children who know life is worth fighting for, no matter how tough the road can be. One common thread seems to run through their stories -- many times, life after cancer, even with its challenges, can be as good as life before cancer, or in some cases, even better. Cancer seems to have this ability to help people focus on the things that really matter in life and to move forward with a bold passion for enjoying the gift of every moment. Don't take our word for it. Let the stories below inspire you as you face your own challenges and join us in celebrating these cancer warriors this weekend and beyond.
