Traveling and Ovarian Cancer: Resources


When my mom was sick with ovarian cancer, she continued to travel. She took cruises to so many different places and saw so many things that I won’t be able to for years (if at all). Obviously, she’d wait until the doctors cleared her, but it didn’t stop her from living her life.

I think that cancer is clearly very physically limiting, but it’s also self-limiting, if you let it be. If you’re interested in resources for traveling with cancer, I’ve put a few high-quality links together (read: no wikis, etc.) for you. Feel free to pass along if you’re thinking of planning your summer vacation (and you deserve one, by the way).
