“With Love, Me”: cancer survivors and caregivers write moving letters to their former selves

Introducing "With Love, Me" - a new program presented by Your Cancer Game Plan featuring powerful stories written by cancer survivors and caregivers.

...learning that your smart, fun-loving, caring son has been diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer at age 29. -Lorraine

...overcoming bladder cancer only to step into the role of a caregiver two years later when your husband is diagnosed with the same disease. -Karen

...being in the public eye and having to share your battle with head and neck cancer not once, not twice, but three times with the world. -Jim Kelly

It’s almost impossible to grasp.
How do you cope? Where do you find strength? Where do you turn for support?

These are the courageous stories of people who have faced cancer — either as loving caregivers or fierce survivors — who are now sharing their hard-earned wisdom in letters to their former selves in “With Love, Me,” presented by Merck’s Your Cancer Game Plan.

You need to connect with others in the same situation as you. They’ll be your teachers in how to live with this new reality. You will feel your fears fade when you talk to someone with the same experiences you’re going through.
- Patrick, melanoma survivor
