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

I live my life in 6 month increments.
Attachment/acquisition is the root of all suffering.–Various translations from Buddha
Somewhere in the pit of my stomach, I felt that I had become divorced from my home, from all the energy that had created it and connected me to it. Deep in my soul, I knew things were changing.
My family is of the feline variety.
I am always up for a bit of adventure.
How does one deconstruct an affluent suburban life?
I am exhausted on every possible level: emotionally, physically and financially. I’m out of shape which makes managing everything just that bit more difficult.
Namaste is a phrase from yoga. In Hinduism it means “I bow to the divine in you”.
Cancer is tough in many ways. For me, the social isolation that ensued was particularly difficult.
Cancer is full of betrayals, big and small. Your body betrays you, your friends may fall away, your finances may fall apart.
In addition to all of the above, for me, there was also business betrayal. Which is what has led to #CancerRoadTrip.
