Hey y\’all. My name is Kim and I am 17 and live in Southern California. I am an AP Theatre student who is writing and directing a one act play this year at my high school. I have a friend who just became a cancer survivor and have many family members who have had cancer as well. I want people, especially high school students, to be aware of cancer and what it really means in the life of a teenager. I am writing my one act play about a fictional teen girl who is writing a blog from her hospital bed about her experience and the memories will come to life infront of her in the hospital room, slowly telling her whole story of the journey. I want it to be very true to life, so that is where you come in. If you would like to share some specific stories or memories of times when your friends didn\\\’t know how to act, or your family had hard times because of it, or what it was like to lose your hair, I will use them to inspire the story of my leading lady. (guys, feel free to chime in too! your stories are just as valuable!) I also need to know what it is like going through chemo and radiation and any other treatments so that I can make all of my depiction as accurate as possible. I want to know the good, the bad, and the ugly. Any of you who have had significant others during this, I need to hear all about that too as the character will have a boyfriend. I want to help educate people on teen cancer, and I hope you will join me in making this statement. If you would like to send me stories or info email me at kimspriggs1214@aol.com I am also here at this email if you just want prayer, someone to vent to, or a friend. Thank y\\\’all in advance for your help in the education of people everywhere! Love and prayers to you all, Kim.
