We have now officially made our way through the top 31 articles in Lacuna Loft’s Young Adult Voices, archives. These articles, as chosen by you, are the ones most often read and returned to. Some of them were written way back in 2014, before Lacuna Loft was even a nonprofit!
I’d like to thank all of the contributors to Lacuna Loft’s Young Adult Voices blog and especially the writers whose work was featured in the top 31 posts. Over the past month, we’ve re-read articles by Cecilia, Anna, me (Mallory), Karen, Dana, Nikhil, Heather, Michele, Jennifer, Imogen, Christabel, Bekah, Mahalia, and Christina. Thank you!
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again…the power that comes with the courage and vulnerability it takes to share these stories is incredible. Every time you share your story, someone else dealing with cancer as a young adult realizes they are not alone. They understand that someone else out there has been through what they are going through.
Spring has been busy at Lacuna Loft. We went to CancerCon in April, the Oncology Nursing Society Congress in May, and we’re headed to the American Society of Clinical Oncology Annual Meeting this weekend. As many of you head into the end of the school year and the start of summer, we’re taking a break on the Young Adult Voices blog for the next month. We’ll be back in July, with more of the great stories and content that you have come to expect from Young Adult Voices.
Our other programs will keep running. You can still count on attending our Young Adult Cancer Creative Writing Group Open Write Nights (sign up in you’re interested in attending) and we’ll have a few Young Adult Cancer (YAC) Hangouts. (We’ll keep you updated on those if you’re signed up).
Until we are back, enjoy our other programs (try something new with us!) and sift through our numerous archives for anything you might be interested in. See you soon!
