"Most of my friends my age had no concept of what I was going through," Joy stated. "Neither they (nor I) knew a lot of others our age dealing with the devastating physical and emotional effects of cancer."

Topeka, KS (PRWEB) June 03, 2014

According to the Press Release for National Cancer Survivors Day, "On Sunday, June 1, 2014, cancer survivors across the globe will unite to show the world what life after cancer looks like."

After a brave fight with stage four cancer in her 30's, Joy Huber is on a mission to show the world you can have cancer and still be happy! Joy was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma in March of 2010, and she endured three years of chemotherapy while suffering the complete loss of her shoulder-length hair as a single young adult.

"Most of my friends my age had no concept of what I was going through," Joy stated. "Neither they (nor I) knew a lot of others our age dealing with the devastating physical and emotional effects of cancer."

Motivated by all the glum, sad faces she saw at multiple hospitals and cancer treatment centers she was at for her own treatment, Joy had an idea - she could uniquely help others face "Cancer with JOY." Joy literally serves as a personal guide who's "been there" to the newly diagnosed, those currently in treatment, and their support team including spouses and other caregivers as she speaks at events around the country spreading her cheer.

She received a publishing agreement for "Cancer with JOY" from Morgan James Publishing of NYC, and the book is now avail. as a paperback, ebook, and even an audiobook. Joy also shares a free "Daily Dose of Joy" through her Facebook page and Twitter account.

When explaining "Cancer with JOY," Joy says, "Of course no one is happy they have cancer! But you can have cancer and still be happy!" Joy has even worked with terminal patients helping them make the most of their remaining time vs. withdrawing from friends and family.    

Joy was just featured on CBS Affiliate WIBW TV Channel 13. "I hear from others telling me how I've inspired them to choose a different response to their cancer," Joy said. "They hear my story, and say, 'If she faced 'Cancer with Joy,' so can I!"
