Join HNCA to Find Inspiration and Hope Through the Power of Storytelling with the Newly Launched With Love, Me Program
This year, we’re continuing our partnership with Merck and Your Cancer Game Plan to help those impacted by cancer with the launch of a new program – With Love, Me. The new initiative features a series of heartfelt letters on www.WithLoveMe.com written by caregivers and cancer survivors to their newly diagnosed selves and other caregivers touching upon what they wish they had known when they were first diagnosed/providing care.
There’s great power in sharing stories, and when it comes to facing cancer, patients and caregivers have found hearing from others affected by cancer may help. The website features a gallery of patient and caregiver letters where people can read, view and share stories from others who may have walked in their shoes. Learning what it’s like to be a patient or caregiver through another’s journey may help alleviate feelings of fear, anger or sadness and help prepare for what can oftentimes be a daunting road ahead. Most importantly, it can serve as a good reminder that you are not alone.
Please join us by visiting www.WithLoveMe.com to read and view personal letters from people impacted by cancer, become inspired and learn more about how to take an active role in developing a “game plan” to address the emotional, health and communication challenges of a cancer journey.
Visit today and start sharing your own #WithLoveMe message because your cancer story may help others.
“I was able to do this through prayer, stubbornness, and humor. It all really helped keep my attitude positive and my head in the right frame of mind,” explained Gary. “Look, cancer sucks. It’s scary, but it can be beaten. Ninety percent of what it takes to beat it is in one’s mind.”Gary Lazarz Survivor of Stage II HPV-Attributed Throat Cancer
