Write Your Cancer Story
June is National Cancer Survivors Month and we wanted to honor cancer survivors so we invited the public to submit one original, not previously published, 1,000 word or less essay inspired by a personal experience with cancer. We received essays written from both the point of view of the patient and the caregiver, authors ranging from 17 to 81 years old. Our panel of judges selected the final three and now your votes will pick the winner! We were so moved by all of the submissions and wanted to share their courageous, creative and heartfelt words. May they inspire you as they inspired us!
Our contest is over but the support continues...
We want to send our thanks and appreciation for our authors who shared their time, courage and stories with our community! We invited them to read their work at a reception and we were all very moved - not a dry eye in any of our houses!
Finishing treatment is not the end for many cancer survivors and the transition back into daily living after cancer can be bumpy. For those looking for support and guidance we are currently offering a Cancer Survivor Workshop Series, a special 6-week series of self-exploration and healing.
