How It Began...

Aniela and Nora met through a mutual friend who noticed that they had a few things in common- a similar sense of humor, an ability to laugh at themselves, and a new cancer diagnosis. While in the midst of chemo, Nora reached out to Aniela online. The two connected, and a fast friendship formed. They kept up with each other during treatment and recovery, and shared tips on what they learned through the cancer process.  

During one fateful conversation, both admitted that neither felt connected to the term "Cancer Survivor". They understood why the term connected cancer patients, but wanted to approach their own cancer diagnoses and recoveries through a different lens- one that didn’t invoke the negative connotations of a war or battle, but offered the positive approach of a viewing a cancer diagnosis as a learning opportunity.

When they asked each other what would they would WANT to be called if not a "Survivor", they brainstormed a few alternate terms. Soon they were struck with the realization that they were not only Surviving, but were also GRADUATING.
