CancerRoadTrip started when I sold my house to travel. Since then, I’ve been through 3 continents, 8 countries and numerous states, numerous times. I’ve also been through 3 rounds of chemo, radiation and surgery. And so much more!

Also be sure to check out the gallery for photos and more posts about my travels.
