Hi, my name is Chance Lauren Isler-Alexander and I am twelve years old. My father was diagnosed with Stage IV cancer when I was in second grade. His cancer went away and then it came back. On January 24, 2018, my dad passed away of cancer, when I was ten years old.
At that time, I wasn’t sure of how to handle my feelings and I struggled with grief, social relationships, not knowing how to deal with my feelings, not wanting to talk and share my feelings with my family and friends, because I didn’t know how.
Grief is a very hard process and a lot of kids, including myself don’t know how to handle it. My sister, mom and I saw the need to help kids that are grieving. P.S. I Miss You…What’s Your Story? was created to help kids.
The items in the boxes we make are made to help a child and to remind them that they are not alone. These boxes also come with a personalized letter from me.
So far, this business has made me feel very proud of myself, because it feels good to know that I am helping other children that are going through the same thing as me. If you are wondering what the “What's Your Story” part means, it means that everyone has their own unique story.
