Our Living Library

Storytelling is one of the most powerful ways we can share our knowledge, and cancer knowledge is no exception. Hearing others’ stories helps to create connection, encourage learning, and enable healing.

Our Living Library presents stories from knowledge keepers such as our Elders and others with valuable experience at different stages of the cancer journey.

Together, they comprise our most valuable source of information, our living library.
