I just came across this post on LinkedIn about a new website/initiative for youth who are critically ill, https://livingoutloud.life/.
On the website livingoutloud.life — which officially launched at a youth cancer conference in Sydney, Australia, last week — Catherine Wreford Ledlow and others tell their stories through video and the printed word.
Wreford Ledlow hopes to help others by letting people know about the things she needed help with, including the difficulties of talking about death with her family.
This is an amazing resource to turn to for one who is ill or as a caring friend, colleague, teacher, family member, and more.
“The site, funded by the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer and the Thomas Sill Foundation, was developed by young adults and teens for young adults and teens, their families and health-care providers to find information that hasn’t been easily available, said Simone Stenekes, who is part of the team that launched the website.”
Youth particularly need resources to turn to that are geared at their age group.
