Welcome everyone to August! (Or is it still March?) We can all agree this year has been a tough one - and a long one -  and we're still in the thick of it. 

BUT thankfully, we have an amazing network here at Eye of the Survivor, where we can find support and h...

It's been said for centuries that knowledge is power. Well, while it's not said nearly as much, knowledge can also be scary. 

Jenny Marsh learned that in 2018 during a routine visit with her gynecologist. After counting up family members who had experienced cancer, almo...

While the country continues to grapple and cope with COVID-19, the murder of George Floyd, protests, riots, and looting, emotions and anxieties are running at an all-time high for pretty much everyone.

But it's during the toughest of times we look toward those who truly...

When she's not reading the latest Stephen King novel, Debbie Savage is busy personifying her last name. Only a savage could beat breast cancer, not once, but twice. There's a reason we named her our May Survivor.

Ah, the start of a decade. Newness, excitement... fear.  But it's only 2020. Remember Y2K and all the catastrophic craze that came with that? So this is cake. Especially for our January Survivor who spent 2000 fighting for her life. And we are thrilled to report just a...

“You think that if you have cancer you would have other symptoms.”

While a fair thought, this is not always the case as our December Survivor learned.

See, “other symptoms” are not needed when you already have one (a lump!) and in many other cases, there are no symptoms...
