Fill the Silence Project is a deeply personal one - developed over a three year period. Cancer has the tendency to scare people off, leaving patient's like myself feeling lonely and isolated. This project aims to maintain communication between friends and patients, by showing patients why and how to give permission to talk to them about cancer.
"We all know cancer's shit but what's shittier is when it stops your friends from talking to you".
