The Story Project

The Story Project is our effort to capture the stories from the people in our Mass General Cancer Center community: patients, friends, family, clinicians, and staff who have been affected by cancer in some way. Our hope is that people will benefit from sharing their stories and from reading other’s stories.

I am more resilient than even I thought that I was. And I always considered myself as someone who is resilient, but I’ve never been through an experience like this before.
