Virgil and Chadwick: I can relate

Two young, black men passed away due to cancer they were getting in silence. They chose to silently suffer.

Virgil’s design. If only I ould ear heels again!

Storytelling and sharing is powerful. It showed me that I wasn’t. It also showed me that people do have a heart.

There is no need to suffer alone or in silence. You don’t have to bear that burden alone.
