Writing Through Cancer

Writing Through Cancer is a website designed for those of you whose lives have been touched by cancer. Each week, I'll post a writing prompt designed to inspire you to write from your experience of cancer. Each prompt will be available on the site for one month.Why write from the pain and struggle that comes with cancer? Studies have shown it can actually be good for you. When we repress emotions and silence our stories, we weaken our ability to heal. Writing allows us to unearth and express all that we think and feel. Through the creation of stories, we learn, as we have always done, how to make sense of our worlds. Writing is a form of self-expression that is readily available to you. You can do it just about anywhere: at home, on the train, in a waiting room, or at a cafe. All you need is pen, paper or your laptop and whatever is in your heart and mind. I hope that you'll find new inspiration from the prompts offered here-- inspiration that encourages your stories of the journey of cancer.

Best Wishes from Sharon Bray, Ed.D.
