Stamford Hospital has launched a new Facebook-based campaign inviting the Darien community to share their stories about getting better and staying well.

"It's Why" is an interactive tab on the hospital's Facebook page that presents a collection of stories from members of the community.

There are stories posted about a woman's breast cancer treatment, a mother's experience with the hospital's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and an athlete's experience with the Orthopedic & Spine Institute.

Facebook users can access the "It's Why" tab from the page and compose a brief story to share with others. Those who wish to share will be prompted to describe their experience in a 190-character post and complete the sentence, "It's why..." and can post a photo to go along with their story. Submissions are sent directly to the hospital and then posted to the page.
