    Hi Braidon,

    Thanks for stopping in. We’re all here for your support.
    My guess is yes, you DO know what you’re talking about. Teens with cancer get it. There are many people on here who GET it. Sometimes I think it’s one of the hardest things to be an expert in. Right?

    I’m a two time cancer survivor myself…and I say there are days where you wish the expertise didn’t come so second nature. Yet, I believe that reaching out is one of the best ways to feel better about the experience.

    Braidon, it’s great to meet you and I am glad you found us.
    I hope you will continue to check back here and direct people you encounter walking this journey to this page.
