Cancer survivors and others living with chronic medical conditions may want to consider sharing their stories and becoming patient ambassadors. Here is part of the introduction I found on PatientAmbassodor.com:

Welcome to PatientAmbassador™.com, an online community that provides support, knowledge and inspiration to patients and care partners who strive to live well in spite of a chronic medical condition.

How exactly do we support others? We tell patient stories. Why? Because compelling stories—stories like yours—matter. They connect us with each other and have a real impact on our lives. If you have a story to share, then you have the potential to make a difference in the life of someone living with a chronic condition.

If you’d like to tell us about living with a chronic condition or proactively managing your health care, we’d love to hear from you. And if you’d like the potential opportunity to share your journey to promote awareness and empowerment, sign up to join our community today. By joining, you may have the opportunity to meet and inspire others just like you at educational seminars, or reach people through:

•Print media
•Public relations
•Interactive platforms

I know a number of patient ambassadors–all are strong, remarkable and inspirational people! They have turned their unfortunate conditions into a positive by helping others. You might consider sharing your story and helping other cancer patients as well.

Feel good and keep smiling! Pat
