Need Ideas

Hai, Speechies! I am looking for pieces on the topic "Cancer" for my Program Oral Interpretation (POI) program. I have a couple pieces already, but I would like to find at least two more. My program is more on the human emotion and reaction of the heart-breaking news millions of people get. Thanks for the help in advance!

Here are a few that I found that sounded interesting:

The Cancer Poetry Project: Poems by Cancer Patients and Those Who Love Them

If you're league allows the use of film scripts, "50/50" might be worth looking into if you want something a little humorous.

That's all I have for now. I'll let you know if I think of some more!

Oh my gosh! Thank you so much! I have been searching and haven't found little to no results. Thank you!

No problem! I hope something works, or that it leads you to other good pieces you like more.

And good luck with all of your events this season!

I am using The Girl With Nine Wigs! Thank you!

Yay! I'm glad you found something you like :^)
