Voices of our AYA Cancer Community

Presented by Stanford Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer (SAYAC) Program and the Stanford Health Library

Sharing your story can be a helpful strategy towards healing and communicating with others about your experiences. Join us to learn and apply creative prompts to guide you through telling your story however you choose.

Writing. Poetry. Photography. Painting. Audio. Other forms of art.

Why share my story?

Storytelling is the most human thing we can do. By sharing our stories we reveal the experiences and emotions that bind us together. Stories remind us that we are not alone and that everyone's story matters.

What will I share?

Anything you want. We are partnering with Elephants and Tea, the only magazine written for and by the AYA community, to walk us through several prompts and help us reflect on our experiences and craft our stories.

How can I share my story?

We encourage you to share your story in whatever way works best for you. That can be through writing a narrative, poetry, song, audio, photography, erasure poetry, painting, or any other form of art.
