The Be You Collection


Welcome to The B.L.A.I.R. Connection’s second collection, The Be You Collection. The goal of collections is to provide siblings an easy way to contribute to the website and make them think about their situation in a new and unique way. Siblings of children with terminal illnesses can often feel as if they are defined by their brother or sister’s experiences. The Be You Collection aims to emphasize the individual traits and interests of siblings who are often overlooked. I gathered the responses of seven different siblings to several questions. 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].
