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.
Take it from me: cancer prevention is always preferable to cancer treatment. As I’ve transitioned from cancer researcher to cancer patient to cancer survivor, I vow to make every effort to keep others from joining my club.Stewart Lyman, Ph.D. Cancer Researcher and Biotechnology Consultant Survivor of HPV-attributed Tonsil Cancer
