DéPENDRE: Story of the Season - Coming March 1
For DéPENDRE’s third and most inspiring story, we follow the story of a young woman named Tally whom lost both parents, and her younger sister to foster care when she was only 16. We show her experiences and hardships, and how it helped her grow and work towards getting her sister back. On the 5th of February Tally won full custody of her sister Grace, and is now her legal guardian. A story of difficulty and inspiration, you don’t want to miss DéPENDRE’s story of the season.
We have the largest story DéPENDRE has shared to date coming up soon! It has absolutely everything, detailing the life of someone I know. She’s an amazing girl, and is very well known on here, and her story is one which we are so happy to have! It’s a story close to our heart, and we hope you find it just as inspiring as we do.
Coming Saturday March 1st, keep your eye out for updates!
If you venture onto the DéPENDRE blog right now, you’ll see a brand new look for the blog! We think this is more conducive to our ultimate aim. It showcases the latest, most important articles and features in the new slider, which allows you to watch videos, and navigate to stories at the click of a button.
The new article format will make the blog much more tidy, giving you a preview of content and allowing you the option to continue reading - which we think would be a really good idea.
The navigation menus are simple and can direct you to wherever you want to go. We have email subscription, along with general Tumblr follow, there’s different means of contact, a simplistic archive allowing you to find stories quickly and easily, as well as navigation to our Youtube Channel, and such other quick links.
We hope that you guys find this new layout much better than the last.
Thank you once again for being apart of DéPENDRE.
DéPENDRE: Sarah’s Story - Calling Out To Your Brother
Many of us lose something each day. Connections, friendships, jobs, sports, and belongings just to name a few. Loss is possibly one of the most severe emotions to feel. When you become accustomed to a certain way, and then lose it, it can play around with human nature, and we are then expected to readapt once again. It shakes us up, and many of us struggle with that concept.
For Sarah, her loss was much greater than a simple game on the netball court, or misplacing her phone. She was born into a family of three; she had a mother, a father (whom divorced in 2007) and a brother, who was four years older than her. I think for girls, having an older brother often stands out as something they’re thankful for.

DéPENDRE: Sarah’s Story - Coming January 25
For DéPENDRE’s second story, we take a look at a girl named Sarah’s battle with loss and grief within her family. Her ongoing strength and ability to continue being selfless and considerate constantly is a true inspiration to us all. Writing this story has been difficult for me, because the amount of sympathy I feel for Sarah and her family is immense - but the focus should be on the strength, consideration and lessons that we can all learn from an experience such as this one.
We realise that there has been a significant time since the last story shared, and so we are delighted to inform you all that a brand new story will be coming soon! Stay posted guys, and thank you all for your support.
DéPENDRE: Lauren’s Story
19 year-old, Lauren seems like the everyday Southampton girl, long blonde hair, happy attitude, and lots of love to give. Yet, Lauren’s story is not a simple, or normal one for that matter. Most girls at the age of nineteen, have been through the regular primary years, middle and high school years, have graduated and are now focusing on their futures. It’s generally an easy road, but Lauren’s was one of the most difficult I had ever come across.
In 2007, when she was thirteen years old, Lauren was diagnosed with Neuroendocrine Cancer. Whilst her peers were beginning their so-called ‘golden years’ Lauren was on a strict treatment scheme, which consisted of both Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy.
DéPENDRE: Lauren’s Story - Coming January 3rd 2014
The first story to be published on DéPENDRE will be available tomorrow. Follow now to be the first to see this inspirational story which details Lauren’s struggles with cancer, depression, bipolar and drug problems. Her ability to carry on and remain strong is a lesson to all of us.
