BCPC Wants Your Story to Share with Others

BCPC member Celeste Spence is leading the effort to set up a BCPC Speaker’s Bureau and assemble a Testimony Book(let).   Speakers will be asked to share their “cancer stories” with small and large groups of folks who are interested in cancer research and prevention. BCPC will use the Testimony Books with newly diagnosed cancer patients, relatives and friends who need to see “hope” and reality from people who have walked the walk and faced the enemy, cancer.

We encourage anyone who has experienced cancer personally, or has shared a cancer diagnosis with a loved one, to write about the experience and e-mail it to Celeste at  All stories will be edited by a team of English teachers and will be printed grammatically correct. The length of one’s story can range from a few paragraphs to 5-10 pages.

Please send us your “Cancer Story”  today.
