“It’s Always Something” essay contest provides forum for teens to share cancer experiences with community
Gilda’s Club Northern New Jersey (Gilda’s Club NNJ) is hosting its second annual “It’s Always Something” Teen Essay Contest to encourage high school teens to write an engaging, heartfelt essay that focuses on the impact cancer has had on their lives.
The mission of Gilda’s Club is to provide welcoming communities of support to anyone affected by cancer and bring together people who are experiencing similar situations. The contest is open to teens that have had cancer, had a family member or friend with cancer or lost a loved one to cancer.
