Stories of Hope
When a family receives a diagnosis for their child, it can turn life upside down. It’s not uncommon to be handed pamphlets about a diagnosis and then be told, “don’t Google it” by a medical professional. But parents want to know what daily life will be like, how others cope with the diagnosis, and what the future may hold.
Internet search results for a diagnosis often hold a mix of medical information, posts on discussion forums, and a wide range of stories — many of them worst-case scenarios.
Our Stories of Hope fill the gap for families searching for information about a diagnosis. Our goal is to publish stories that talk candidly about the hard days with a diagnosis and also focus on how they hold onto hope and faith in daily life.
Ultimately, our stories of hope are a way for families to know that a diagnosis doesn’t define them, that they are not alone, and that their story matters.
