Our team is awesome! All professionals, all creative individuals dedicated to making the Scar Stories vision a reality. It’s a team of real people, with busy lives and real connections to cancer, that take their sentiments and turn them into a movement – to bring light to issues surrounding young adult cancer and to empower young people to see their scars in a new light. The team, the hours, the wine, the business – it sure helps me see my scar as empowering and beautiful.
— Jasmine Gailer, President
