Campaign: To raise awareness of the after effects of cancer, so those in remission get support

I was diagnosed with Hodgkin Lymphoma, a form of cancer, when I was 16-years-old.


I received chemotherapy and was later told I was in remission.  


Although this news was extremely positive, I felt I lost my support network of doctors and friends, as people assumed I was completely better.


I felt I still needed that support as I tried to return to normal, while dealing with the emotional trauma the cancer had caused.


I don’t think that people are aware how deep the effects of cancer go.


With Fixers, I want to show that remission is not the end of the journey. Beating the illness is only half the battle.

Claire-Monique Martin and Jessica Arden helped me with this Fix.
