What is your story?

By Wendy Hanson, @wendyhanson

 

What is your story

Meet Claire. At age 20, Claire was studying to be a doctor and was diagnosed with melanoma. In the midst of a terminal diagnosis she became an inspiration to many. Her family shares this touching story.

Claire's Story

Every person has a story – patients, caregivers, family members, friends – everyone. In the video Claire's dad reflects on while it’s true we could be hit by a bus tomorrow, we can take steps to avoid it . Cancer isn’t like that. Often a cancer diagnosis comes despite having “looked both ways.”

Yes, a cancer diagnosis can seemingly hit you out of the blue and the emotions tied to this discovery are many. Does Claire’s dad’s sentiment resonate with your own experience? We would like to hear your story.
