So many of us participate in Breast Cancer walks to honor those we love and lost. Not many participate in one and two months later become diagnosed with Stage 1 Grade 3 Invasive Ductal Carcinoma. That is exactly what happened to Mel Majoros. Mel, who is the co-host on WMKT’s Vic McCarty show was in the best physical shape of her life when she heard the news at age 37. Through treatment, she started blogging for cathartic purposes. Now, Mel’s blog and podcast are one of the most popular in the country as she inspires thousands and helps those go through the anxieties cancer can bring.
Recently, her blog, thecancerwarrior.blogspot.com was named one of the top inspirational cancer blogs by mritechnicianschools.org and one of the top ten breast cancer blogs by blogs.com. Mel also has a podcast on empoweradio.com that provides a positive spin on cancer. She likes to link her positive attitude due to her favorite past time, ice hockey which she played during her treatment. She says, “Being the captain of my team, I retained an athlete’s mentality in battling cancer. When you play hockey, if you get knocked down, you can’t just sit there on the ice when the game is going on. You have to keep skating.”
