The Backstory on CancerRoadTrip
An Award Winning Travel Blog
CancerRoadTrip started when I sold my house to travel. Since then, I’ve been through 4 continents, 10 countries and numerous states, numerous times. I’ve also been through 3 rounds of chemo, radiation and surgery. And so much more!
For me, travel heals. As the miles unfolded, it occurred to me: “If I could have a CancerRoadTrip to heal, why can’t others?”
And the idea of CancerRoadTrip was born.
This blog follows my travels, my expeditions to look for future healing retreats, interviews and whatever else may be of interest. You can also read more in the About Section.
Also be sure to check out the gallery for photos and more posts about my travels.
Starting in 2020, with Covid-19 restricting travel, I’ve added a podcast Bump In The Road that looks at how we all navigate the ups and downs, and twists and turns in this road trip called life. The episodes are below and I hope you’ll subscribe to the weekly show.

The metaphor of a road trip would seem to be that of an external quest, but not this one.
Wellness doesn’t always receive the priority it deserves in our busy lives. Cancer makes us realize just how important self care really is.
