By sharing your story with us, and giving us permission to share it, you could help us to raise awareness of St Cuthbert’s Hospice, help to dispel myths about hospice care and help more people to access support.
Your story can also inspire people to fundraise, volunteer or recommend us to someone they know.
Top Tips for writing your story
We’ve put together some tips to help you plan your story before you send it to us.
- Use your own voice and words. Don’t worry about grammar and spelling – we’re here to help with that.
- People like to read personal stories they can relate to, so try to tell us as much as you can. Imagine you’re telling someone for the very first time, what would they need to know? What happened and how did it make you feel?
- If you’ve been on a journey of lows and highs, let us know what those moments were. What advice might you give to someone in the same situation?
- Get inspired by reading some stories that other people who have experienced Hospice care have already shared.
