    Like Matthew, writing became a source of solace and self-understanding following my cancer diagnosis. That introspection helped a great deal in coping with the bombshell of hearing that sinister word cancer, then building a life of meaning in the wreckage that it left. I ended up finishing my own book that I hope people might use on their own journeys and redefining and rededicating their lives. Matthew, best of luck and thank you for sharing your compelling story!
