The right words competition


Recommended Posts

Marlo Thomas is compiling a new book with individual stories. the final date for submissions is April 16, 2004. Below is some details. It would be great if someone here got selected and mentioned this website in their story. What's the official name here now LCHelp.com or lung cancer survivors?

"That's why I'm so excited about our next project. Inspired by the touching and heartfelt response to The Right Words at the Right Time, we are compiling a second volume of stories and I'm hoping you'll be a part of the adventure by sharing a story of your own. If there's one thing we learned from the first book, it's that you don't have to be a prizefighter, or a world-renowned architect, or a concert violinist to have been affected by the power of words, and to have experienced firsthand how those words can change a life in an eyeblink. I'll bet you have a story just like that."
