Share your story

Stories build communities

When we read about someone, it can make us feel less alone, offer a glimpse into their life, and create deep connections between strangers. Stories are powerful.

Share Your Story

We don’t pretend to know everything… how can we?  That’s why your story is important. Your experience with childhood cancer gives you unique knowledge. When you share that knowledge and experience with us, it can help other families we support feel less alone and improve our services. 

We have a group of people called Kite Connectors of all ages and from all walks of life who share their stories and experiences with us. We invite you to become a Kite Connector.
