At what point are you considered a ‘survivor’ of cancer?  After surgery? After treatment? After a year?  No. You are a survivor from the moment you are diagnosed.  Once a survivor, always a survivor.  I challenge you to take your survivorship and be an inspiration to all who know you with surTHRIVorship. Turn your adversity into an opportunity to inspire others.

After being given a second chance at life, I founded to raise awareness about oral cancer. I hope no one goes through what I went through. So much of my ordeal could have been prevented through education. Education about the existence of this deadly disease.  Education about the early signs of oral cancer.
