The Be Positive Collection


Welcome to the newest addition to The B.L.A.I.R. Connection website, the “Be Positive” Collection. I am hoping to publish more collections in the future with different themed questions for siblings to answer. This collection aims to emphasize the positive aspect of a child’s relationship with their terminally ill sibling. I gathered the responses of five different siblings to five questions about their experiences with their sibling. If you are a sibling of someone with a terminal illness and you’d like to be included in the next collection, email me at [email protected].
