My cancer experience and three weird things about it

My experience with cancer had three weird things about it

My cancer experience had several weird things about it.

  • There were a couple of people really uninformed. They stayed too close to me they might get cancer as well.
  • I once heard somebody say behind my back “Hey man, look! He didn’t die yet!”
  • No one around me has pronounced the word cancer until I was more than halfway done with the treatment.

I will let the short video below to emphasize these three things from my cancer experience:

(the footage below is a rough cut from another video and at some point, I also briefly mentioned the book I am writing.)

Youth Cancer Europe is a great idea and project

cancer survivors all over europe

Youth Cancer Europe is what cancer survivors and patients in Europe needed. I strongly advise you to check out their story.

The idea was born with Sarunas Narbutas, the president of the Lithuanian cancer society, a cancer survivor, and Shajjad and Katie Rizvi, founders of Little People, an award winning, Eastern European cancer charity. Together they created the Youth Cancer Europe foundation that incorporates youth cancer networks across Europe.

You can find out more by following their website. They have several projects ongoing and I haven’t seen such an organisation in Europe so far. Youth Cancer Europe is also formed out of cancer survivors from all over the continent that help realize various goals.

I had the privilige to become an ambassador of this european organisation. I have attended for the first time their international meeting in Vilnius, Lithuania – August 2017.

Bellow you can see a short interview I gave for YCE. You can hear me talking about cancer communication guidelines and my experience with it.
