The Heroes Project 2019: Celebrating Survivorship

It’s been a decade now since we started The Heroes Project, our way of celebrating survivorship and supporting the fight against cancer. We started small… choosing to use our talents as storytellers to shine the spotlight on some remarkable neighbors and friends. Every year in this issue, we introduce a new group of survivors and tell their stories in print and online. Stories of courage, of hope and of remarkable resilience, which are both incomprehensible and inspirational.

There are well over 100 Gwinnett Magazine heroes now. Every image we take, word we choose and story we tell is important to us and we’re committed to celebrating these survivors.

Treating the patient, not just the disease
Why Choose Advanced Urology?

We often say these are ordinary people thrust into extraordinary circumstances, but truly – these are not ordinary people. They are instead courageous, tough, undaunted, faithful and joyful. They tell us that they are not heroes, but we know that’s the part we’ve always had right.
