Seize the Days: Interviews with Cancer Patients and Survivors Provide Inspiration

Celebrating the Ways Cancer Patients Add Life to Their Days 

by Evan J. Lipson, M.D., guest blogger  

Dr. Evan Lipson is an oncologist who launched an organization called "Seize the Days" in order to celebrate people living with cancer and explore the ways they make their days meaningful. The project gives patients and their loved ones an opportunity to record and share their stories using broadcast-quality audio interviews, which are available to view at

Interviews on the website from over 50 patients demonstrate that people living with cancer add life to their days in all sorts of interesting and remarkable ways. Some people strengthen relationships with loved ones, becoming even closer with family and friends. Other people concentrate on activism, starting foundations or fundraising. Some derive fulfillment by creating something - art, poetry, or music. These creations help patients express emotions, leave a legacy, or regain a sense of control.

One of the reasons for developing this site is to showcase the spirit and courage of cancer patients in order to inspire others. In addition, the website provides patients and families an avenue through which they can share and memorialize their stories and those of their loved ones.
