Share Your Stories of Hope

By Currents Editor posted 10-22-2021 10:25

  

“Stories of Hope” is a popular column on the Neurocritical Care Society’s Currents content center. This series has been uplifting patients and providers alike since its founding. To support NCS’s Curing Coma® initiative, which aims to develop and implement coma treatment strategies that improve human lives, we invite you to share your stories.

We are seeking submissions for your "Stories of Hope" that specifically showcase inspiring stories related to coma, stroke or TBI.  We hope to use these experiences to create stories and profiles to feature on Currents, highlighting how coma has impacted families and how donations to Curing Coma can help.

How to Share Your Story of Hope

  • Share your story in 300–500 words for NCS to publish and promote. If a patient is referenced by name, we need a release form from them.
  • Optional Record a 60–90 second audio or video recording via phone or Zoom. This recording will be shared on YouTube and social media.
  • Optional Join NCS as a guest for a “Stories of Hope” podcast episode.

Use the following links to share your story. Questions? Please contact info@neurocriticalcare.org for more information.
