MY LIFE Matters Magazine:

Tigerlily Foundation’s MY LIFE Matters “EMPOWERED” Spring 2024 Issue is here!

This is an Elephants and Tea & Tigerlily Foundation collaboration focusing on stories of empowerment.

Each amazing author shares how they have been empowered in life and through life’s challenges that they have experienced as they navigate their cancer diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship. As you read these stories, be inspired and look inward to how you can become empowered as you navigate your own diagnosis and life.

Feeling empowered during your cancer journey can look and feel different for every single person. It can also be unique to each position within the care continuum from patient, caregiver, survivor, medical expert, to the community as a whole.

Be empowered to advocate, be empowered to educate yourself, be empowered to share your story to create awareness for others. Be empowered to help seek change in policy to improve health equity to end barriers of age, stage, color, and location. Be a caregiver who shares lived experiences and tips that can help others to feel empowered in caring for their loved ones as well as themselves. All of these unique types of empowerment showcase advocacy at its best.

We know the stories within these pages will resonate with you regardless of your cancer diagnosis or where you are at in your cancer experience.
