In our Southern Alberta Multiple Myeloma support group, we refer to cancer survivors as 'warriors'. Our warriors all share common features in the forms of faith, loyalty and courage.

In the summer of 2001 I was thirty-nine years of age, single, fit, an outdoor enthusiast and a practicing nurse.

The truth in that belief soon became apparent in more ways than I imagined.
