"Life After Cancer - Stories building resilience", presented on July 1, 2014 at Flinders Centre for Innovation Cancer public lecture series "Cancer Insights" [ http://www.fcic.org.au/Events/2014/p1... ] Marie addresses how storytelling can help us articulate and understand ourselves and the world around us and how this can impact the cancer journey. Many cancer survivors are turning online to find a sense of connection and self-construct through the medium of blogging. This is not only therapeutic for the writer; it is for the reader too. As more stories are shared, the online community becomes enriched and empowered by a growing narrative of diversity. For clinicians, care providers, and researchers these narratives provide rich insights into the lived experience of cancer and offer the possibility of improving the patient experience in more meaningful ways.
