As I’ve mentioned before, I never wanted to be known as Caryn with Cancer... but the reality is that’s who I am. My cancer has made me a better version of myself and for that I’m grateful. These Cancer Conversations with Caryn are going to be mini-episodes that will provide you with what worked well for me - simple suggestions that brought HOPE, RESOURCES and CONNECTIONS throughout my cancer journey.
