When I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009 there was so much I did not know. I still don’t know a great deal – but everything that I learned along the way I shared on my blog: Chemo Chic – A Guide to Surviving Cancer With Style.To my mind, that is the point – Chemo Chic is not about me, its about sharing what I’ve learned. Now I am asking you to do the same – Jessica Jones, founder of The Chemo Chic Project.
The Chemo Chic Project is here. Our vision is to create a brilliant resource for anyone going through the trauma of cancer. If you feel you have a story that can inspire others, or just some good practical advice, then we would love your contribution.
The Chemo Chic Project welcomes written or video submissions which are:
- Well researched
You may be going through cancer yourself. You may be a partner, friend or family member of someone who is going through it. You may have had cancer in the past. You may have unique insight as a doctor, nurse, nutritionist, therapist, chef or hairdresser. Your story might be about a day in your life; any aspect of your cancer journey or your experience as a partner, friend or family member of someone going through cancer. You could include photos, illustrations, videos or links. No story is too small but it has to be yours.
Chemo Chic is about living well in the face of cancer. We are particularly interested in articles that cover the following areas:
- Recipes and food
- Natural beauty and cosmetics
- Wigs and hair tips and stories
- Clothing, hats and scarves
- Fitness and exercise
- Mental and emotional health
- Complementary therapies
- Relationships with partners, family and friends
What we are not looking for:
- Advice giving (but do relate your own experiences)
- Medical opinions (unless you have specific expertise in this field)
- Miracle cures (unless you have genuinely experienced one yourself)
Send your proposals and submissions via the form below or to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please share this page with anyone who you know who you think has a great story to tell or a useful tip to share.
The world is looking forward to reading your story. Now get writing!
