Lean on the community to see the power of sharing your story in action

Vikas, a storyteller on Rcoz.us was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in March 2021 during the COVID pandemic. He was worried for his life however he overcame it when learning from his doctor that the prognosis was good. The process he followed to feel supported was the need to share this information with his family and friends.

Sharing his story with them gave him the energy to navigate through the tough times he was experiencing.
Talking to and with the support of friends and family resulted in Vikas casting a wider net in the sea of knowledge, support and mental health. After viewing Vikas’s story video his friends and family immediately took to sending him well wishes. “Your positivity was contagious- it gave us strength during those months” says one person.

Another person says “ This message is from your heart and will truly help others” . To have those close to you vouch for you helps to take weight off your shoulders. “Lean on me when you’re not strong. I’ll be your friend. I’ll help you carry on.” Is a song that exemplifies Vikas’s story.
