Cancer survivor: “It’s a sense of responsibility to share my experience with others”

The final feature in our series honoring women's cancer awareness months highlights breast cancer survivor Parul Somani, a new mother whose diagnosis during pregnancy inspired her to share her story with others. Starting a blog during her time in treatment at the Stanford Women's Cancer Center, she found a love of writing and a way to document the experience for women battling the disease. "It's a sense of responsibility to share my experience with others in a way that will inspire or be educational to them,” she says.
