Patient Stories Project

We want to hear how you are doing.

As your healing journey with COVID-19 continues, you may find that sharing your story can be therapeutic for you as a patient. COVID-19 has been a challenging time for all of us, and sharing your story can not only help you, but we know it helps re-affirm the purpose and value of the work we do every day.

Participation by patients, family, or caregivers are welcome and involves answering the following questions, and if you wish, please submit a couple of recent pictures. To see an example of what your patient story will look like, please see Jaclyn's Story.  If you would rather speak to someone in person, please contact

Our hope is that in answering the following questions and sharing your story, we can better understand and learn from your experience.
