Conversation

Q&A WITH THE CANCER PATIENT

TCP: I've got a couple projects that I would
want to keep a surprise for now. A few
things in store to expand the platform. But
I plan to continue to do what I'm doing. I
never expected the page to grow. I never
expected it to be a worldwide platform
where people actually convene and talk
about real shit. I don't have any lofty goals,
aside from the upcoming projects. Maybe
a collaboration to make an app if the right
opportunity came along. I work full-time.
I try my best not to bite off more than I can
chew. I'm also in the early phases of my
nursing career and am working on that. I
have more attainable goals for my nursing
career at present. Also, I'm opposed to putting ads on my page.

Jen: What's the most memorable discussion
you have had as TCP?
TCP: Some of you might remember this, it's
saved in my story highlights. I interacted
with someone from Denmark, and she had a
rare type of cancer. One of my friends here
had the same cancer, so I was like oh wow!
I actually know this cancer! She had never
met anyone with that type of cancer, and I
connected them. Eventually her treatment
stopped working. And she asked me, " can
you make a discussion about what it's like to
die from cancer " . I was so taken aback. She
wanted to know what was going to happen,
and what she was in for. Definitely one of
the most memorable and pure discussions
on that page. Like 100% of the time when
I'm doing discussions, it's me winging it. I'm
not a therapist, or a trained mental health
professional. But to be able to have that
platform and an opportunity this important...what to expect when you're dying from
cancer. To have that discussion- it was so
heavy, but so fulfilling and rewarding at the
same time. To help her transition and have
peace and acceptance of what's coming.
Jen: Thank you so much for sharing your
heart and soul today. I know it's an honor
and privilege to get to hear a bit about the
hidden person behind TCP. Any final parting words to these readers?
TCP: Don't let anyone tell you how to have
cancer and a happy fucking rebirthday to
me! O
