Television journalist Katie Couric and Susan G. Komen CEO Paula Schneider share a common experience in their experiences with cancer: There is a lot of advice they would offer their former selves.

One a caregiver and the other a patient, Katie and Paula have teamed up for Your Cancer Story – a platform designed to share patient stories to ensure an individual affected by a cancer diagnosis never feels alone.

“Keep your head up and keep walking forward. You never know where the path will take you,” Paula wrote in her letter to herself.
