“I found writing about my cancer very therapeutic, but there is so much to write about. Using it’s about us made it less daunting to write about my cancer. It’s great to be able to look back at what I’ve gone through and to see how far I’ve come.”
MARISA – Cancer Patient

“Twenty years of research, including major studies in The Oncologist and Harvard University’s Health Beat, indicates that expressive writing – dealing with one’s deepest thoughts and feelings – may contribute to improved physical and emotional health. I see this consistently with the patients and caretakers I am so fortunate to work with, as writing helps them find hope and positivity in their outlook on cancer and life.”

ERLA NEWHOUSE – Grief Counselor

“Writing as a means of creative self-expression can be one of a number of powerful and meaningful tools that can assist emotional healing and adjustment for those touched by an experience with cancer. It can provide at the very least an opportunity to pause, reflect, understand, process and clarify, and to construct a narrative of your experience for yourself and others.”
