What is Twist Out Cancer?
How Does it Help?
Twist Out Cancer aims to harness the power of personal connection and community to support survivors as they fight, cope and heal. Through sharing the community is called to action.
How Does it Work?
Each survivor is invited to create a profile page describing his or her "twist" on cancer. The survivor is then asked to create a dedicated call to action that is meaningful to his or her cancer journey. This task must be easily accomplished and documented by supporters using photography or video. The survivor's profile becomes a collection of personalized tributes meant to provide comfort, inspiration, and hope.
