Help me improve lung cancer outcomes!
We’ve been extremely fortunate to be joined in our Chronic Love Discussions series by Jaymie, a brilliant, deeply humble, generous, powerful, and empowering human in the lung cancer community.
Jaymie has long been accomplished in generating movement, including through her work as CEO of WJMS Radio. What can be easy to miss when we know people for their illness is that Jaymie, like others with cancer, led a deeply rich and meaningful life prior to receiving her diagnosis. In the moments when she was faced with the reality that a new part of her world would include battling, living with, thriving, and returning to the wholeness of her world with and apart from her stage IV lung cancer diagnosis, Jaymie leaned in and continues to face these challenges head-on, all while paving a less obstructed path for others to follow.
If you spend time with Jaymie, you would soon come to see that she is one of those humans who very quickly touches your soul in an irreversible and deeply beautiful way. For Jaymie, for the people who are fighting for their lives at this very moment, in memory of people who have lost their lives to this terrible disease, we ask you to give a contribution or to share this link as if peoples’ lives are on the line and your choices make a difference. Our world cannot afford to exist without people like Jaymie. Let’s let her know this. Let’s fund the research that finds the treatment to save her life.
At Chronic Love, our mission is to create a supportive space for people with chronic illness. It is our intention to use our platform to amplify the voices of humans navigating the fallout of chronic illness; to lend language to the complexities of our lives so that we can begin to share the unshareable; to offer an honest glimpse into lives lived with and beyond illness; and to build awareness and encourage movement toward support. In our community that we are building together, you are never in this alone.
At Chronic Love, in collaboration with our generous featured guests, we share candid discussions about living with chronic illness with the intention of showing the humanity, the wholeness of life impacted by chronic disease. We hope that these conversations can offer a needed counterpoint to the often sterile portrayals of illness and treatment in the service of helping those living with illness to feel less alone; to offer supportive others a lens through which they may more sensitively meet the needs of their fellow humans with illness; and to raise awareness, curiosity, critical thought, and contemplations of change as we lean into issues that impose further hardship on humans living with illness.
