it’s about us is all about helping those who have been affected by cancer. Every person’s cancer journey is unique and trying to leave a legacy of memories during a difficult time may be too overwhelming.
We developed a digital scrapbook for you to customise and create something relevant and meaningful. Providing inspiration through simple, personalised template style pages will allow you to capture your memories, emotions and feelings, through text and photos within a supported framework.
We’re trying to make things that little bit easier and hope to make a difference to people who really need it. Our aim is to help you, your family and friends create a way to capture and treasure precious memories.
it’s about us is a not-for-profit company based in Sydney, Australia. We work with a number of health care professionals. These include: Breast Care Navigators, Clinical Psychologists, Grief and Bereavement Counselors, Marketing and PR experts, Creative Directors and Cancer Patient focus groups.
Thanks to the generosity of our supporters and partners we have been able to raise the necessary funds needed to bring this project to life. If you would like to contribute to our cause please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
WHAT'S ON - WRITING WORKSHOPS
We are running free "Writing as Therapy Workshops" for anyone affected by Cancer. These run over a 5 week period online. Each week, in a small supportive environment, you will learn about how to use the software, writing strategies and tips as well as hear presentations from a number of professionals in the cancer space. These include, a Psychologist, Dietician, Sleep Coach, Exercise Physiologist and patients.
it’s about us was the vision of Associate Professor Gavin Marx. This project was inspired by his patients’ courage, wisdom, insights and clarity of what truly is important and meaningful. Jo Marx has worked in marketing and advertising for many years and wanted to use those skills to help provide a beneficial and meaningful tool for cancer patients. Desray Maltz was diagnosed with DCIS in 2013. Understanding the lack of a resource like it’s about us being available, she joined the team to help make it happen.
ABOUT THE BOOK
it’s about us is a digital, template style book that can be personalised to suit your needs. We provide you with a free digital version which can be printed at home (slight watermark is visible) or a beautifully printed book through our print partner Momento Photo Books.
Think of it as a digital scrapbook capturing YOU, those around you, your journey, feelings and emotions. You can use photographs, quotes, thoughts and stories, include keepsakes and other important treasures.
Family and friends can contribute too. Create a legacy, a collection of memories that can be treasured forever.
