Teens Share Stories of How Cancer Affected them

Teen writing contest

It’s hard  enough being a teenager,  let alone having to deal with your parent having cancer.  How does it feel to be  in high school and already be  facing the grim reality of a cancer diagnosis  yourself or for someone you love?  South Jersey teens are opening up and talking… honestly about those feelings and how cancer impacted their lives in an insightful and therapeutic essay and poetry contest being held by Gilda’s Club South Jersey.

Gilda’s Club South Jersey is holding their 5th Annual Teen Writing Contest for students in the  9th through 12 grades.

Between now and March 16th, Gilda’s Club is accepting essays or poems ,  500 to 100 words in length, which speak honestly about how cancer has affected the teen’s life.

Three winners will be chosen in both essay and poem category, with the first place winners receiving Apple I-Pads.  The 4th Annual Teen Writing Contest is being sponsored by Wawa, Cape Bank and South Jersey Industries.

Gilda’s Club South Jersey, which has a clubhouse at 700 New Road in Linwood, offers social and emotional support at no charge to anyone touched by cancer.
