Huntsman Cancer Hospital’s “Living Legacy”

In the summer of 2005 YourStory began a partnership with the Huntsman Cancer Hospital to record the life story of any cancer patient who requested this service.

The following stories demonstrate the rich range of experiences shared by those touched by a cancer diagnosis.
