Your Story Matters

Each of us has a story to tell.  And our stories are powerful!  Something about what you’ve experienced could directly help other young adults facing cancer.

The first conversation I had with another young adult cancer survivor was a meaningful moment for me.  I felt like I wasn’t alone, that there was someone else who understood what I was going through.  Shortly after that conversation, I read a blog post that resonated so deeply with me that I wanted to climb through my computer screen and give the author a hug.  These stories are powerful.  They have the ability to pull us out of isolation and draw us closer together.  The young adult cancer community needs these moments, these connections, and these voices.
