One of the many avenues of support for individuals living with breast cancer is the sharing of stories and information with each other. As Dr. Paul Bowlby of Saint Mary’s University (Department of Religious Studies) quotes in the BCANS book, Breast Cancer Online: How We Told Our Children, “Telling stories is a gift of love! We are inspired by stories of courage. We give strength to others and to ourselves as we share our vulnerabilities.”
Do you have an experience with breast cancer? Are you willing to share your story? Through the sharing of real life experiences, we can provide much needed inspiration, comfort, information, and a sense of community for the many women and men living with breast cancer in Atlantic Canada – and beyond!
BCANS is actively encouraging submissions (written, photos, or videos) from individuals who have a story to tell about how breast cancer has touched their lives. These stories will be posted on our website and will help us to strengthen our supportive and informational online community of BCANS and ABCN.
To share your story, send your submission to:
- Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Fax: (902) 484-6436
For more information, email email@example.com or call 902-465-2685. Your stories will be edited to help them look their best. BCANS reserves the right to only post submissions deemed suitable.
