100 Stories (originally The Cancer Chapter) was started by Helena Traill in February 2019 as part of her Graphic Communication Design degree at Central Saint Martins. 

1 in 2 people will develop cancer in their lifetime. So the majority of the population will either be directly or indirectly affected by cancer. In Helena’s case her father has been living with two brain tumours since she was 3 years old and her grandmother was diagnosed with breast cancer in the summer of 2019. 

As a designer Helena is trying to tackle the taboo subject that is ‘cancer’ head on, by narrating other people’s stories. 

What a brilliant idea for a book. I love the differing personalities and stories; I learned so much from so many of them! I really hope this book does well. We need more honesty and diversity in the cancer community.

Beautifully put together, touching with an important message behind it. This book has done fantastic things for those who have been suffering with cancer, and really allows the reader to see into the lives and stories of ordinary people who have had the terrible misfortune of having been diagnosed with the illness. 

This book is amazing. Not only because it is helping to further the conversation around cancer and to bring it into daily conversation but it also shows how different everyone is with a cancer experience. We aren’t all bald and attached to drips. Many are out and about with hair looking like anyone else. Helena is incredibly talented and it’s also a great piece of art. Even if you ignore all the cancer stuff!
