“We read to know we are not alone.”
C.S. Lewis Shadowlands
You will never need to hear a story as much as you do now. Through hearing other people’s narratives we are reminded that we are not the first person to have suffered in this way, although it feels like it. The pain isolates us and it simply feels private. It can’t be shared. And in my experience, I think that is right. No amount of counseling, support or reading can take away the feeling of desolation it does feel like a one-person rope over the abyss. But I do know that hearing about other people’s experiences of brain cancer helped us to find our way on our journey. Here we have created a space for people like Meg to write their stories and share them with you. And if you want to add your story, then please let us have it.
