Not much has happened since last week. Lucy and I still have to sort out all the details which we will complete this week. We are writing out our entire plan for our program.. things like what is is, when it is, and where it will take place. With this information, we will send it to the cancer center social worker, and our mentor, Jessica, and hopefully that will be the start of making our idea come to life. These couple weeks are going to mainly revolve around thinking and planning. Once we get all this figured out, we will be ready to start!

Yesterday, Lucy and I met with the Cancer Center social worker, and our mentor, Jessica. We proposed our idea, and she loved it! Our next step is to figure out all the details involving: the type of patients we are adressing, also when we will start the program, and how often we will meet with the patients. Slowly but surely, we are making progress!

Hi my name is Caroline and this is my very first blog post of my twenty time project. For my project I am working with Lucy Loch, starting a teen-to-teen program at the Van Elslander cancer center in the hopes of making a successful program where young cancer patients can form companionships with people like Lucy and I. When I found out about 20 time I was so excited because this is something I've always wanted to do. I am so passionate about helping people who are less fortunate than others, and we chose to do a teen program so we can connect with the patients being that they are close in age. My goal for this is to form companionships with the patients giving them the feeling of a normal life and just make with time with cancer a optimistic thing. I want to give them the opportunity to look at life and love it rather than being afraid of it. Hopefully I will be able to impact their lives, the same time they will be impacting mine.
