Here’s another great program for cancer survivors. Elizabeth’s Canvas describes itself in the following way:
We are a community of friends, family members, healthcare professionals, artists, and educators all of whom believe in the healing power of the creative process.
Currently most cancer related non-profits are focused on raising money for research, which is great! More patients are surviving and more survivors are living longer lives. But what happens next? How are patients and survivors supposed to live complete and inspired lives once they have had cancer?
And listen to the next paragraph!!:
Elizabeth’s Canvas believes that the creative process can help answer these questions. Research has proven that the creative process can reduce pain and anxiety and improve self-esteem; consequently, we provide cancer patients and survivors with the tools they need to freely express themselves.
Hurrah for Elizabeth’s canvas and other programs which recognize the importance of the creative process as part of healing. You can read more about this wonderful program here:
