Start a Conversation

The Canadian Cancer Society has a message for you: #YouAreLoved.


Step 1: Watch
  • You Are Loved by Fight for Life features three female cancer survivors, describing their individual battles and encouraging women to speak to their doctors.

 


Step 2: Listen
  • Cancer doesn't discriminate anybody
  • Don't live in fear; enjoy everything! Enjoy as much as you can
  • If you know something is not right, make sure you talk to your doctors.
  • Allowing people to support you doesn't negate the fact that you are still strong and abled.

Step 3: Start a conversation
  • Share this video and invaluable message with your loved ones.
  • Take their words to heart, and know that life can change at every corner.
  • Be cautious. Be smart.
  • Early detection is key. Seek a medical opinion if you've got any questions.
  • Don't waste time; do what you want in life, now.
Check out Fight for Life for more information.

I dare you to start a conversation with your mothers, aunts, friends, grandmothers, sisters, co-workers, and doctors.  Educate yourself about the symptoms and questions to keep in mind.  Spread the love to fight women's cancers.

  3. This is so great! Thank you so much for sharing! This really hits home for me as I recently had a colonoscopy due to lower abdominal bloating. The doctor found a polyp with precancerous cells and removed it. I was 28 at the time and my doctor really didn't want to give me the colonoscopy because I was so young. He was shocked when he found the polyp and was so grateful that he performed the exam. I think it opened his eyes and he realized that cancer prevention isn't only for people over the age of 40. Had I waited until age 40 to get the exam, I would have most likely developed colon cancer. It is so important for us all to stay on top of this! Thanks again for sharing!!

  4. Meredith, this is such a perfect post. I literally just found out one of my extended family members was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. I can't wait to share this post with my family! Happy Thanksgiving, girl!

  9. I don't know whether it's just me or if perhaps everybody else experiencing
    issues with your website. It appears as if some of the text in your content are running off the screen.
    Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too?

    This may be a issue with my browser because I've had this happen before. Kudos
