Why Survivor Sherpa?

Cancer doesn’t have to be a solitary journey.

Cancer does so much to change your life, your belief system, your sense of security and your sense of self.

You are not alone.

Survivor Sherpa is my desire to help anyone out there going through this know they are not alone. We want to help, we want to help because I was very fortunate in both my diagnosis and the circumstances of our lives, now I am thriving after cancer and want to help others to thrive as well.

Even though I am thriving now, there were difficulties, difficulties no one could have prepared me for and that I wasn’t ok dealing with.

Your medical team has all of the BIG things taken care of. You and your tribe have the DAILY things taken care of –mostly. There is a whole host of things in between that may need to be addressed in your circumstance and we are here to help:

  • Find local resources.
  • Find information without having to use a search engine for it
  • Have someone to talk to about those things you don’t want to talk with your medical team about –even with a good relationship, there are still those things

There is a lot you are going through and the information from your medical staff is like drinking from a fire hose, hopefully we can provide answers when you need them.

Basically, we want to be your sherpa for this journey so that you can concentrate on healing knowing that other ‘middle’ stuff is taken care of.

I am a wife and mother to three daughters, a chemist and a breast cancer survivor. I would very much like to help others by caring and advocating for them while sharing my experiences and tips that may help to thrive during and after treatment.
