Fight On at West Cancer Center

Cancer brings out our worst fears. But it also brings out the best in us. “Fight On” is a tribute to patients, and their families and doctors, who are fighting cancer. Here, they can share their stories of strength in the hope of inspiring those who are beginning their own fights.

“Fight On” is a call to unite those with amazing stories of courage, hope and love. Cancer is a journey that begins at diagnosis and continues for a lifetime. Along the way, there are trials and tribulations, with steps taken forward (and often a few taken back). But through it all, you will find companions who share your struggle and understand what it takes to fight on. You will find many of them here.

Here is where the darkest moments become the greatest achievements. Here is where humanity shines bright. Here is where thousands of voices come together to whisper two little words of encouragement that help you make it through the day.
