Unheard Stories – August 2021
As people with a rare bleeding disorder, many in our community already share a lot in common. You sometimes feel different, left out, or unheard. Having a bleeding disorder has probably caused unique challenges or situations in your life that people outside of our community may struggle to understand. We want to help you speak up and share your story.
On Thursday, August 5 at 6 PM, we will host our second Unheard Stories event. We’ll provide the virtual safe space where community members like you can share your story. Speakers will have roughly 5 to 10 minutes to share any story they’d like. We’ll also work with you beforehand to plan out your story. Sharing these stories can be a powerful experience for both the speaker, and the audience listening to the story.
Want to see what this event is all about? Watch the three stories that were shared at our first Unheard Stories event by clicking here. These stories can help connect members of our community around shared experiences or receiving support for the stories that are shared. After these stories are told, we will debrief as a group to see where these stories connect to your life and how you can support others facing similar challenges.
