WHAT ARE WE TRYING TO DO?

We are trying to create video with great content to help cancer patients through their journey as well as educate people that want to learn all aspects of what cancer patients’ experience.

We will be creating videos of cancer patients/survivors that have been extremely optimistic to help encourage people that are having a difficult time. One of the most difficult challenges of cancer is not giving up, because how can you expect to win the fight if you start it by throwing in the towel?

VIDEO TOPICS WILL INCLUDE:

-Tips for newly diagnosed patients

-Programs that are out there for cancer patients and survivors

-Inspirational cancer survival stories

-Information on what it’s like to go through and live with cancer

-And much more!

WHAT WOULD WE USE THE MONEY FOR?

The money would be used to better the quality and professionalism that we would like to represent within the videos. We could buy a better camera, lighting equipment, servers, website domain name, etc. Everything is very expensive. All the money raised will be put towards this project that we hope to one day form into a non-profit organization. The more money we raise will help us to continue making videos and keep the site open!

WHY WE ARE DOING THIS?

As a cancer patient, I know the hardest thing to do is not to lose hope. It is extremely difficult.  I wished there was some place that would tell me what I would go through and to help mentally prepare me. Not having known anything about cancer, I wished there were videos of cancer patients and survivors to help encourage me. My mom told me that Lance Armstrong had the same cancer as me. I went and watched a bunch of videos on his story. There is no site that provides video content purely for the purpose of motivating, inspiring, and preparing cancer patients.

WHY VIDEO CONTENT?

Videos are this generation’s most popular and connectable form of communication. You can physically see the person and hear them talk. You can relate to a video more than just a voice or text. You can put a face with the story and feel more secure in the truth of it. It is a powerful, more personal connection.
