Stories of courage and perseverance in honor of
National Cancer Survivors Day
Everyone has a unique story of resilience to tell. In honor of National Cancer Survivors Day, Montclair Film, Summit Medical Group and Summit Medical Group MD Anderson Cancer Center collaborate to present a curated evening of stories of survival, triumph, and healing.
Submit your story and you may be chosen to read or perform LIVE at Montclair Film’s Cinema505. Selected stories may be included in a special Montclair Film, Summit Medical Group and Summit Medical Group MD Anderson podcast and video! Storytellers and stories will be selected in advance.
What should my story be about? Tell us about a time when your feelings of helplessness turned into the fight of your life, and you pulled out all the stops to persevere. Perhaps it was a cancer diagnosis, or an unexpected betrayal. We’ve all experienced that mix of emotions – fear, anger, sadness – when life throws you a curve ball but we come out stronger at the end of the battle.
Who can submit? Anyone 18 years or older
How long can my story be? Up to 5 minutes performed
What is the deadline for submission? Submission deadline is Friday, June 1st. Coaching sessions will be offered to invited storytellers. For questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
