“YOU ARE NOT A VICTIM FOR SHARING YOUR STORY! YOU ARE A SURVIVOR SETTING THE WORLD ON FIRE WITH YOUR TRUTH, AND YOU NEVER KNOW WHO NEEDS YOUR LIGHT, WARMTH AND RAGING COURAGE” Alex Elle
When you join WeHeal, you will be able to tell your story in the “Profile Description” area, and you can also post your story in any community that you join. By sharing your story, especially focusing on how you researched your treatment options, why you made the decisions you have made along the way, and which treatments worked well and which didn’t, you will empower others with your experience and help them make more educated decisions themselves. Sharing is what CrowdHealing is all about! “Alone, we struggle! Together, we heal!” Eric Drew
Once you have signed up and logged in from your confirmation email, please search and join any WeHeal Communities that are relevant to you or people you know. Now you are ready to share information, ask questions, and network with others who are fighting the same fights you are and begin to build a robust community of advocates!
WeHeal respects your privacy and will not share your personal information with any other organization or person. When you join, you can choose to use an alias as your “Profile Name”, and people will know only by that name on the WeHeal site if you want to keep your identity private.
