Hi Survivors, their Families and Friends,
Welcome to www.1UpOnCancer.com. This site is for you if you want to look cancer in the eye and not be afraid – or at least feel much less afraid.
I’m a long-time health writer. I’m also the daughter, niece, granddaughter, cousin, and best friend to people who’ve faced the beast. And in September 2009 I became a cancer survivor myself. I had myself diagnosed as a gonner, even before I had my first round of A/C. All the data floating on the Internet just rocked me at a time I needed to hear the positive.
I started this site for a place to find that; you will only get good news here! Please visit to learn about survivors and organizations doing incredible things. To learn about promising research. To read about lifestyle choices to cut your chance for recurrence or to live well if you have metastasized. Visit for “Freebies for Cancer Patients” and other resources. And if you want a good laugh, click on the “Humor” link. Enjoy, and I hope you come back often.
Best in health and happiness,
