The Story Project

Sharing Personal Experiences to Help Others

Share Your Story

Sharing stories can offer support and serve as inspiration to people who are affected by cancer. That could include your story. If you have a cancer survivor story to share, we invite you to share yours with the Mass General Cancer Center at Cooley Dickinson Story Project.

The Story Project hopes to empower the Cancer Center community through sharing the cancer stories of those who have been impacted by the disease. We would love to talk with you about your own experience, and the people you’ve encountered on your journey. Sharing your story can help you heal, and help others who are facing cancer feel less alone.
