Lauren Lux was interviewed by a group of social work students at Virginia Commonwealth University who created a blog examining diagnosis and treatment of terminal/life threatening illness in young adulthood from a social justice and international perspective.
Their conversation was a reference point in the following posts:
1. Coping with Cancer in Young Adulthood: An Overview
2. Coping with Cancer in Young Adulthood: Social Justice Issues
3. Coping with Cancer in Young Adulthood: An International Perspective
You can read the blog here.
Earlier this summer, Lauren Lux organized a daylong storytelling workshop for Skyler and 30 other patients, friends and family in partnership with Dear World. Out of these stories of hope, struggle and resilience came stunning portraits, by Dear World’s Jonah Evans, each of which is both amazingly personal and a tribute to the power of family and community. Dear World will soon officially release the photos, as well as a short documentary they made while they were with us.
The Be Loud! Stone Fruit Sangria is the perfect way to beat the dog days of August! It’s this month’s #CommunityGiveBackCocktail at City Kitchen in Chapel Hill.
A southern summer twist on the classic with dry white wine, dark cherry juice, peach liqueur, brandy, peaches, plums, nectarines and cherries.
For each of these cocktails sold in August, the folks at City Kitchen will donate $5 to Be Loud! Sophie. So swing by to cool off!
