Often when we go through health crises, we feel alone. By sharing your story, you are not only providing a call-to-action for your community, but showing others that they are not alone in their experiences. We are continually inspired by the stories people share and channel into a force for change.
Is there someone you know who has courageously shared their story, inspiring you and impacting your life? Nominate them for the Consano Ripples of Hope Award. We will present the award during our Consano PDX Portland event this October 21st.
Our inaugural winner was The Kalanithi Family. Dr. Paul Kalanithi, author of the The New York Times bestselling book “When Breath Becomes Air,” has impacted so many as he honestly grappled with the uncertainty of time and how to live — and die — well. Paul’s legacy lives on in his adorable daughter Cady and also in the words that have meant so much to so many. Dr. Lucy Kalanithi attend the event last year to accept the award on behalf of her family, and signed copies of “When Breath Becomes Air.”
We are excited to honor another amazing person or family at this year’s event. Nominate your inspiration now! Nominations close at midnight on April 30th.
