Back on Healthline’s Best

Best_Lung_Cancer_Blogs_2014_1At the end of last year the EmBen Kicks Cancer blog was selected for a spot on the Healthline.com list of the Best Lung Cancer Blogs of 2013.  Healthline just came out with their best-of-the-year roster for 2014 and guess which blog is back on the list…..  EmBen Kicks Cancer!!!!

As the Healthline article relates, stories that emerge from the lung cancer community can be inspiring, heartbreaking, hopeful, and thought provoking.  Some of the blogs selected convey the raw emotions and day-to-day realities faced by lung cancer patients undergoing treatment, while others focus on encouraging news from researchers or calls to action from activists.  Regardless of their purpose, the blogs’ perspectives on life give everyone reason to appreciate today and be hopeful for what tomorrow may bring.

EmBen Kicks Cancer!!!!

The blog was started a year and a half ago to provide information on Emily’s condition to relatives and friends to ease the communication burden on her immediate family.  As doctors formulated the best course of action, the blog was used to raise funds for fertility and cancer treatments.  However, as her journey progressed, the blog evolved.  Eighteen months later the blog has now been viewed in over 120 countries.  This past week EmBen Kicks Cancer surpassed the 200,000 view mark!!  We are thankful for all of the support, and so very happy to be able to extend help and hope to others battling this disease.
