Mail in your stories
We find that sometimes, writing down your stories is a great way to reflect & process what you're going through. If you're a cancer survivor, if you're a caregiver of somebody
currently going through treatment-
we want to hear from you.
How do you do this? Print out a picture of the person you are writing about & on a separate sheet- write their story. It can be any length. It can go into as much detail, it can discuss an overview of a journey or share just a particular story.
Then mail them them to us at:
1000 Cancer Stories
PO Box 598
Yorktown Heights, NY 10598
What happens to the stories that are submitted? When you mail in your stories, we'll ask you to fill out a form which will outline several options. You might just want to reflect on a story- and in that case, we'll just hold onto them. But if you're looking to share them, we'll ask how we can do that.
You can choose between giving us permission to share on social media, an overview post on the blog or maybe you'd like us to hold onto it for our ultimate goal of one day publishing a book with all of the stories.
No matter what your comfort level is- there's an option for you!
Write a blog post
One of our favorite elements of this open forum, is sharing our stories through our blog. If you're interested in taking your involvement in this a step further, this is perfect!
We ask that if you are interested to send us an email. We will work directly with you to go over some guidelines, help you process if needed, and we'll be working to make sure this blog post is as meaningful as your story is.
Email us at 1000CancerStories@gmail.com
to get more information & to get the process rolling!
*We will be scheduling posts as we see fit. Depending on the time of year and the volume of stories coming in, your post might not be published immediately. Please be patient with us because we want to share as many stories as we possibly can & can only do that with you!
Film a video
Are you feeling ready to take it to the next level by filming a video?
Sharing a story via video can be extremely difficult- I would know as I have done this! I ensure that filming a video will be done carefully, respectfully & with love.
If you think this option is something you'd like to do, send us an email. We will work very closely together before filming will even begin. If you are local- meeting to film would be ideal but we of course will accept videos from anywhere!
