Tell Us Your Story

We invite you to submit your story to Finding Hope, the blog for all Canadians who have been touched by the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. No matter who you are—a patient, survivor, loved one, sponsor, donor, caregiver, volunteer, physician—we want to hear about your experiences. Please share a story of approximately 250 or less, and attach a digital picture or two that help bring it to life. Our editors will read every story, and publish all the ones that reflect the message of Finding Hope.

Submit your story to findinghope@cbcf.org

Submission Guidelines

In order to respect the experiences and sensitivities of others who may be reading this blog, and out of regard for the health and well-being of cancer patients currently under medical supervision, please keep the following in mind:

  • stories can mention or neutrally describe medical treatment, but absolutely cannot advocate any form of medical treatment or offer medical advice;
  • stories must stay within the good taste guidelines of the Foundation;
  • we will not publish photos with nudity;
  • stories about government health care funding or health care policies will not be published;
  • stories about non-Foundation related events in Canada will not be published.

Please note that we sometimes publish stories which mention (without taking a stand on) medical procedures, treatments, or institutions; developments in breast cancer treatment or news about breast cancer; other organization and agencies; and people (such as physicians, medical researchers, or newsworthy figures) who are not officially affiliated with the Foundation. We do so when we find them interesting and think that Finding Hope readers might as well, but these references are provided solely for informational purposes and do not constitute official endorsement. All opinions expressed in the stories on Finding Hope are those of the individual authors and not the Foundation, and copyright of all stories remains with their original authors.

Thank you for sharing your story with us!
