When you’re facing cancer, a mantra may help you stay
focused and hopeful. And often, the best mantra for your journey comes from someone else who’s been there.

caregivers shared inspiring mantras and words of wisdom here on our Cancerwise blog.
Here are 10 of their most inspiring quotes. We hope
you’ll find at least one that speaks to you regardless of where you are on your cancer journey.
