A therapeutic writing course for cancer patients and survivors

Whether you are newly diagnosed, currently in treatment, or have been in remission for years, writing about the different aspects of your cancer can be therapeutic.

Men and women with cancer turn to writing for many reasons. Here are just a few:

  • to organize your thoughts
  • to express your emotions
  • to identify what is important and what has changed
  • to speak in your own voice when doctors are telling you what to do
  • to claim yourself as a unique human being and not just a statistic
  • to identify loose ends and unfinished business
  • to come to terms with this major event in your life

In addition to helping you free up your emotions, writing about cancer can have medical benefits for you, too. Studies show that when people write their deep thoughts and feelings about traumatic events, their heart rates slow, their bodies are better able to fight infection, and people feel a general sense of well-being.
