How I made it through Chemo by Denise McCroskey

“I wrote and talked.”

“When I was diagnosed with Stage  III breast cancer, I decided to start blogging,” says Denise McCroskey, of oregon, oH, who documented her journey at “During my hours in the chemo chair, my priority was talking to others receiving treatment. A great conversation helps the time pass quickly. And even if we had different types of cancer, we were able to share coping strategies. My chemo nurses knew I liked to talk to others so they would ask if I would talk to a patient who needed an understanding ear. by encour-aging others, it helped me get through the most challenging time of my life.”
