There are some things that only one patient can tell another. This is where you will find patients and caregivers sharing their most personal stories and their best advice about how they have survived their illness.

We received great advice and we are sharing it with you! Please check out this page for short videos of patient advocates sharing what they wish they had known or prepared for so you will be ready too.
